Why Teaching Diversity, Equality & Inclusion in our Schools is so Important
Presented by the UUCSR Via Zoom
Wednesday, September 29, 2021 at 7:30 pm
DESCRIPTION

Two of the current seven Unitarian Universalist Principles are a belief in the inherent worth and dignity of every person, and free and responsible search for truth and meaning. There is also a movement within the UU faith to incorporate an 8th Principle that would be a call to action to dismantle racism and other oppressions in ourselves and our congregations. The Unitarian Universalist Congregation at Shelter Rock in Manhasset has unanimously endorsed the 8th Principle.

The teaching of subjects through the lenses of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion has been endorsed by the New York State Education Dept. The aim of DEI, as our panelist Dr. Dan Holzman says, is to educate students to know where our society has been, where we are and where we're going, and to prepare them to be global citizens in a diverse world.

--Jim Smith, member, UU Congregation at Shelter Rock
