Gender, Equity, and Intersectionality

Rev. Melora Lynngood with Worship Associate Victoria Barr – In this service, we look at what our Unitarian Universalist – United Nation’s Office (UU-UNO) has been working on in the international community with regards to equity for LGBTQ+ people.

We also consider what we can do in our own UU communities. We’ll pay particular attention to ‘intersectionality.’ To quote a UU-UNO resource, “Intersectionality, a concept created by black feminist legal scholar and activist Kimberlé Crenshaw, describes the ways in which the effects of multiple forms of discrimination or oppression (based on race, gender, class, etc.) create overlapping and interdependent systems of discrimination or disadvantage … a person experiences the world through all the identities they hold, which cannot be separated.

Understanding intersectionality lifts up the reality that none of us can be free until we are all free”.

Looking Our Future Squarely in the Eye

Philip Symons, Wally du Temple and Glenyss Turner with Worship Associate Lynne Bonner – The future holds more challenges than just a climate crisis. Many are worried about our planet and all the species – including humanity – who share it.

What is realistic to hope for in the future? What can the successes and failures of previous civilizations teach us about the future? Can we continue with our current way of life?

Can we, our children, and grandchildren hope for happy lives ahead? How can we prepare ourselves with the ethics and actions to get us through the next 50 difficult years? Join us for a deep dive into what lies ahead.
