  • (Virtual Service) Three Guys Talk About Privilege

    UUS members Ron Pile, Jim Olson, and Dave Martin, who have all volunteered in community programs, offer their thoughts on white privilege and trying to be anti-racist. Robin Diangelo, in her book "White Fragility," says, “Interrupting racism takes courage and intentionality; the interruption is by definition not passive or complacent. So in answer to the question, ‘Where do we go from here?’, we offer that we must never consider ourselves finished with our learning.”

  • The Story of a Refugee Grateful for a Second Chance

    Jean Paul Mugemuzi, a refugee from the Democratic Republic of Congo, and UUS member Jim Olson will explore Jean Paul’s journey from his home village to Iowa and relate this journey—and their friendship— to our summer theme “The Quest for Truth.”
