  • Fund Hope: Sponsor a CLF Member in Prison Today
    Crowdfunding Completed: 11/24/2016
    Amount Funded: $7950
    Posted by: The Church of the Larger Fellowship

    Did you know that the CLF now has 725 members who are incarcerated? That’s more than 20% of CLF’s membership base, and we are expanding to more prison facilities! Prisoners who have “non-traditional” spiritual beliefs often despair in finding a religious community that will respect their beliefs and encourage their spiritual growth while they are incarcerated. Through your generosity, we can offer a membership to any prisoner who wants to join the CLF. A gift of $150 enables the CLF to serve one of our incarcerated members for an entire year.

    Unity Church and Unitarian Universalism have important stories to tell!

  • Stories of Unitarian Universalists of Color: Publishing and Book Launch Workshop
    Crowdfunding Completed: 08/24/2015
    Amount Funded: $3975
    Posted by: manager@uufr.org

    Unitarian Universalism (UU) embraces diversity and inclusion but there are very few faces of color in most UU congregations. Why? How can we make our congregations more welcoming to diverse members of our community? Over a dozen personal stories have been collected from people of color about their experiences in UU congregations. These stories and a transcript of a GA panel workshop on the subject will be published as a book, "When a Chocolate Chip Finds a Sugar Cookie Home" in the late fall. UU Fellowship of Raleigh will host a book launch workshop in which participants will be engaged in a facilitated transformative dialogue and other activities.
