"From Dehumanization to Human Rights"
Listening is a developed technique. Many people hear well enough, but they don’t actually listen. Lots of local communities are learning to listen to the wisdom and voices of non-white leaders. Clyde McLemore will talk about the skills of listening and clearly communicating needs in relation to Black Lives Matter Lake County.
Clyde McLemore (he/him) is the Executive Director of the independent chapter, Black Lives Matter Lake County (BLMLC). He founded the organization in 2015 after the killing of Trayvon Martin, and then the murder of Justus Howell. BLMLC, has been more of a human rights movement than a civil rights movement. The focus has been less about changing specific laws, and more about fighting for a fundamental reordering of society wherein black and brown lives are free from systematic dehumanization. The measurable impact on the political and legal landscape is undeniable.
Service Leader is Jason Grover
Religious Education (RE) at 11am & 7pm (held virtually). For more information, contact Director of RE Jennifer Weigand at Dre@prairiecircleuuc.org

PCUUC Statement in Response to the Black Lives Matter Movement
As people of faith dedicated to justice and liberation, we stand in grief, outrage, and solidarity with those who are protesting the use of excessive force by the police, which has resulted in the deaths of far too many people from Native, Black, Latinx and other marginalized groups in the United States. Our stance is based on the Unitarian Universalist Principles that serve us as moral guides, specifically the 1st Principle, “The inherent worth and dignity of every person,” 2nd Principle, “Justice, equity and compassion in human relations,” and 6th Principle, “The goal of world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all.”
Further, we recognize our individual and collective responsibility to name the ways anti-Blackness and white supremacy show up in our families, work environments, social networks, and communities, and in the local, national, and transnational systems and institutions in which we participate, including in our own Unitarian Universalist denomination and our church community. We are committed to working in consultation with Black churches and Black-led organizations to bring our UU principles into meaningful action, and in doing so to fight for an end to systemic racism.
