Committee for Anti-racism and Anti-Opression

February 2013 Report to UUMA Membership (click here)

Statement of Purpose and Priorities

Purpose:  The Committee on Ministry works to strengthen the ministry of the UUMA by assisting the UUMA in becoming and remaining an anti-racist, anti-oppressive, and multicultural organization with particular attention to racial, cultural, ethnic, and economic oppressions. It will monitor and assess UUMA programs and practices for instances of intentional and/or unintentional oppressions, and provide analysis, assessment, advocacy and education on issues related to anti-racism, anti-oppression and multiculturalism. Our core functions are as follows:

  1. Recommend and review programs and proposals intended to effectively address oppressions and promote multiculturalism within the leadership and body of the UUMA, in collaboration with the UUMA Board.
  2. Establish and maintain a collaborative working relationship with Good Offices.
  3. Consult as needed with the Committee on Ethics & Collegiality on behalf of specific cases that pertain to ARAOM issues.
  4. Maintain ongoing relationship with the UUA, Staff, and other stakeholder groups about issues experienced by UUMA members in matters that relate to ARAOM.
  5. Review and advise CENTER on programs intended to educate the UUMA constituency in ways of combating oppressions while enhancing and celebrating multiculturalism.
  6. Work with the Board of Trustees and the Nominating Committee to elicit possible candidates for recruitment to UUMA committees and report such to the UUMA Board.
