The Pledge to End Racism
The Bay Center has joined together with the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of the Rappahannock to bring the Pledge to End Racism to the Northern Neck and Middle Peninsula. The Pledge to End Racism is a training program that was started by the First Unitarian Universalist Church of Richmond, based on the Birmingham pledge. The program consists of two days of education and discussion on addressing racism. Participants learn together, challenge one another, and engage in real change. Moving from education to action, participants then commit to spread racial justice throughout our community.
The first training workshop was held in the Fall of 2020, consisting of leadership team members from The Bay Center, UUFR, Lead River Counties, and the Interracial Conversations Group of the Northern Neck. The Pledge Leadership Team will hold 2 workshops a year. Please check back soon for information on upcoming workshops.
