Racial Justice Ministry

The FUUSN Racial Justice Ministry Steering Committee (RJM) is seeking new committee and task team members. Our purpose as the RJM is to inspire, educate, and equip FUUSN’s leadership and membership, including ourselves, for vital and vibrant racial justice and anti-oppression engagement in our congregation and in the larger community. We lead the Pledge to End Racism program and conduct other activities in support of this purpose. Other projects include, but are not limited to, working with the Membership director and committee to welcome and support a racially diverse congregation, for example by hosting affinity support groups, working to preserve and present FUUSN’s history with an inclusive lens, advocacy for housing equity in Newton, and staffing a networking and informational table at Coffee Hour.
We are currently recruiting people for positions on our Steering Committee, our Living the Pledge Workshop (LTP) Workshop Organizing Team and our LTP Action Team to support people who have completed the LTP workshop in engaging their commitment to anti-racism.
