The Commission on Institutional Change, appointed in 2017 by the UUA’s Board of Trustees to assess structural racism and white supremacy culture within the UUA’s institutions and its wider religious movement, was a strong presence at GA—in general sessions, workshops, breakout groups, and more. Building on “The Power of We” theme, the Commission invited UUs into conversation and discernment as they shared stories and perspectives on institutional and cultural barriers to diversity, equity, and inclusion in order to deepen the faith as a source of liberation and transformation for all.
