As Unitarian Universalists, part of what it means to live out our faith is that we are continually challenged to be open and direct in our opposition to unjust policies, practices, and behaviors, and to the ways they show up to inflict harm on those who are marginalized, and divide us from our own humanity.  In this engagement, we will examine some of the reasons it may be difficult to take on this essential work. We will examine some of the cultural/social barriers, false expectations, and missed-understandings around racial justice work. We will take a closer look at “push-back,” why it happens, and arrive at some strategies for breaking through to success. Cecelia Hayes is the equity social justice and engagement manager for the Department of Executive Services, King County. She advises senior department leadership on translating business strategy and objectives into attainable goals and plans that are aligned with King County’s goals for diversity, equity, racial justice, and inclusion.  She served nine years as a full-time faculty member, specializing in African American Cultural Studies in the department of sociology at Northeastern Illinois University, Chicago, IL. She a founding member of Black UU’s of the Pacific Northwest, and part of the Westside UU community.  Leader/Facilitator:     Cecelia Hayes Contact:                       Bettydrpr@gmail.com Day/Dates:                   Sunday, October 14 Time:                            1-3:00 p.m. Location:                      Fireside Room Class Limit:                  None Registration Deadline:  No registration required
