UUA is working with people of color ministry on a plan for long-term financial and organizational support.
In response to a presentation made in executive session to the UUA Board of Trustees in October, the Unitarian Universalist Association and DRUUMM, an organization of UU people of color, released a statement October 20, 2018, announcing “a commitment to renew the partnership between the two organizations.”
The UUA announced that it had made a $50,000 contribution to DRUUMM (Diverse Revolutionary UU Multicultural Ministries). The UUA and DRUUMM are “working on a plan for long-term financial and organizational support,” the joint statement said, and will report back to the board in January.
