Black UU Young Adult Gatherings

1st Wednesdays

8:00pm ET/ 5:00pm PT

Black Unitarian Universalist Young Adults (BUUYA) across North America gather every first Wednesday to hang out, get to know each other, and thrive in an exclusively Black UU young adult space.


This gathering is the result of three BUUYAs who started meeting in Fall 2020 thanks to YARN. They loved being in a space that is exclusively Unitarian Universalist, young adult, and BLACK! Now all they want to share it with everyone like them, and more attend every month! 


Practically, there will be a chalice lighting, a check in, and participants will spend time discovering what the BUUYA communal needs are. We look forward to seeing you! Please share with Young Adults in your UU circles.


By and for Black UU young adults. Organized by Donovan Hayden, Mya Wade-Harper, and Kamila Jacobs.


Countering Oppressions

1st Wednesdays
8:00pm ET/ 5:00pm PT

We are a group of privileged UUs working together to dismantle white supremacy and oppression in ourselves and the world around us. We read literature and listen to podcasts together, talk with each other about what we see and what is happening in our own lives, and hold community to support one another.  We meet at 8pm ET on the first Wednesday of every month.
