LAUNCHING AUGUST 20
Culturally relevant. Spiritually grounded.
Family friendly. Radically inclusive. Action oriented.
The faith perspectives, experiences and leadership of Black people have always been relevant and essential to Unitarian Universalism. We invite all UUs and others who have an interest to invest in and engage with this aspect of our living tradition, shipped to YOU once - a - month!
The Black Lives of UU (BLUU) Spiritual Subscription Box is a one-of-a kind, innovative way for individuals, small group ministries and congregations to inform, grow and deepen their faith. With content grounded in the lived experiences and diverse perspectives of Black Unitarian Universalists, this subscription box is a wholly unique opportunity to connect one’s beliefs to faith - led action while building community with others who are dedicated to justice-making and liberation through our shared faith.
Why are you doing this?
The BLUU Organizing Collective developed the BLUU Spiritual Subscription Box for a few reasons. First, we know that lots of Black UUs are isolated from UU congregations and are looking to deepen their faith and connect it with their commitment to justice and liberation. Second, we know from our experiences organizing nationally that many folks active in justice work are seeking spiritually sound, culturally relevant content that is affirming, inclusive and action-oriented, and are looking for a faith home. The BLUU Spiritual Subscription Box is just one way that the Black Lives of UU (BLUU) Organizing Collective is answering the call we’ve heard across the country from those needing resources that not only center their experiences as Black people, but are rooted in a decidedly Unitarian Universalist perspective.
