Know Your Place

When it comes to racial justice, what does it mean to “know your place”? Some see it as a phrase with an oppressive and violent racially-charged history. Others seek to know their place so they might be better engaged and connected in the work of collective liberation. Together we will explore what it might mean to Unitarian Universalists today. Rev. Leslie Mills is delighted to be visiting Utica — from her home in St. Paul, Minnesota! She is the minister of the UU Fellowship of La Crosse, Wisconsin (also from her home in St. Paul), following a ministry at the UU Church of Elgin, Illinois. She lives in an artist collective, practices the Japanese martial art of Ki-Aikido, and hopes that her calico cat will be able to welcome the new Roomba into their home without too much consternation.
