AUUC Social Justice Study Issue

AUUC Social Justice Study Issue for 2016-2017

Racial Justice in America

Racial Justice in America is the focus of the AUUC 2016-17 Social Justice Study Issue.  Rev. Scott has built a program (click here) including sermons, books on racial justice in America that are being used for adult education, and a series of films.  We are also considering a forum near the end of the program that might include: police/community relations with a discussion of how we can help build trust.
