FRSUU Anti-Racism Initiative

What We Do

The Antiracism Initiative (ARI) team works with members of our FRS community to raise awareness about how systemic racism and oppression affect people in the Newburyport area and beyond.

Our Mission

To engage in education and discussions about how the UUA’s 8th Principle (stated below) may deepen our pursuit of the FRS Vision, Mission, & Ends in preparation for a congregational vote on June 9, 2024.

  • 8th Principle: We, the member congregations of the Unitarian Universalist Association, covenant to affirm and promote journeying toward spiritual wholeness by working to build a diverse multicultural Beloved Community by our actions that accountably dismantle racism and other oppressions in ourselves and our institutions.

Our Goals Include:

  • Educating FRS members about local antiracism and anti-oppression initiatives
  • Increasing participation in local and community antiracism events
  • Strengthening community partnerships.

When We Meet
