DRUUMM – Diverse and Revolutionary UU Multicultural Ministries
DRUUMM is a Unitarian Universalist People of Color Ministry and anti-racist collective bringing lay and religious professionals together to overcome racism through resistance and transform Unitarian Universalism through our multicultural experiences. Within UUA congregations, DRUUMM developed from several older ministries, namely the African American UU Ministries and Jubilee World anti-racism change trainings.
DRUUMM has a growing membership of UU People of Color from every district and region. As an all-volunteer ministry, DRUUMM continues to lead efforts to fulfill the Journey Towards Wholeness Resolution towards becoming an anti-racist, anti-oppressive, multicultural UUA, creating space for youth, young adult and our families of color to heal and work collectively, and steward an effective organization that develops new leadership and manages consistent communication with members.

Rev. Joseph Santos-Lyons, the consulting minister to DRUUMM (Diverse Revolutionary Unitarian Universalist Multicultural Ministries), provided this reflection during the Jan 26, 2020 worship service. As said in his reflection, DRUUMM provides space to experience a different level of wholeness and fullness and where people of color can share purpose, a desire to understand and heal, and feel connection. If you are a person of color (POC) and missed the Jan 26th DRUUMM Gathering held at Eastshore Unitarian Church, please contact Roseanne Lorenzana for an overview of events at the DRUUMM Gathering or information about local UU POC get togethers (Board Vice President, firstname.lastname@example.org, https://wsuu.org/druumm/ ).
