We help show the full potential of what Unitarian Universalism can look like.
Many Black, Brown, and Indigenous people are inspired by the message and values of Unitarian Universalism.
However, those who choose to belong to Unitarian Universalism often face pressure to assimilate into Euro-centric culture. The lack diversity within the church often leaves Black, Brown, and Indigenous people feeling invisible and isolated. This has led to many people of color to abandon any formal affiliation with Unitarian Universalism.
There remains so much work to be done on racial justice — and it is critical for UUs of color to have a sense of agency and empowerment in this work.
Color/Full is a photovoice project that provides an authentic path for creative and spiritually driven action on racial justice. Our mission is to create lasting change on the individual, cultural, and institutional level. Through the confluence of photography, community engagement, and storytelling, this project creates a venue to honor and affirm the presence, experiences, and cultures of UU and UU-adjacent people of color.
Our Unitarian Universalist Principles call us to affirm the inherent worth and dignity of each person and to uphold justice, equity, and compassion in all human relations. Color/Full is a promising opportunity to promote a multicultural UUism that decenters whiteness and helps us get closer to making our core principles a reality.
