When to Lead ........
You may have heard of the recent leadership transition in the UUA (the Unitarian Universalist Association).
Our president, chief operating officers and several others have resigned, in response to controversy and questions about white privilege in our association, arising from the hiring process of a regional lead organizer.
The controversy was raised by an applicant (a woman of color) who was not hired. Instead, the position was offered to a white man.
Much of the controversy escalated on social media. I lift up several things: (1) Our congregation and our association are committed to racial justice. We have a long way to go.
And our commitment is deep.
(2) The fact that the assumption/allegation of racial bias was stated is a sign of a shift; it's not kept in quiet despair. Airing it publicly says White Supremacy is no longer tolerated. Nor should it be. (3) The serious response of our Association's leadership is a positive sign that racial justice in hiring matters to us. (4) This is an opportunity for us to accept the gap between who we say we are, who we want and intend to be, with who we are. And to work in that gap, with courage and kindness. (5) And it is important for us to learn how to create and cultivate safe-space for these conversations to help us move closer to who would be, together
