*Cedar Laners Against Racism -- In This Together -- Yes!
CLARITY* is Cedar Lane’s anti-racism “task force.” We are a group of folks (less formal than an official committee) who share the goals of diversity and racial justice. Our hope is for all Cedar Laners to be part of this work!
* The CLARITY name is an acronym for “Cedar Laners Against Racism -- In This Together -- Yes!”
CLARITY was honored to receive the 2012 Joseph Priestley District “Journey Toward Wholeness Group Award”
What is CLARITY about? (Mission, Goals, Covenant)
Our mission is to lead the process of Cedar Lane Unitarian Universalist Church becoming a welcoming multicultural, multiracial congregation. We do so to fulfill our Unitarian Universalist principles, particularly our belief in the inherent worth and dignity of every person. Our work is further supported by our dedication to justice, equity and compassion in human relations; our commitment to the acceptance of one another; and our desire to encourage spiritual growth within ourselves individually and as a congregation.
Our goals include:
• Raising individual and congregational awareness of the continued existence of racism in our society in its various
individual, cultural and institutional manifestations
• Promoting steps to be a congregation that embodies a diversity of cultures, races, ethnicities, and religious backgrounds
• Partnering in accountable relationships with congregations and communities of color to build a just society
Upcoming Events of Interest
All are invited to join CLARITY members on the 4th Sundays of the month to share food, conversation, and ideas. We’ll begin with a light lunch at noon in the Chalice House, followed by an event such as a film discussion or workshop related to anti-racism/multiculturalism.
