Northwest UU Church is a growing, multigenerational congregation grounded in the history and heritage of liberal religion. We are young and old, straight and gay, able-bodied and not, diverse in color, ethnicity, and class. We walk varied spiritual paths to find meaning and purpose in our lives, but we are united in our belief in the worth and dignity of all people, and the obligation to express our faith through acts of justice and compassion.
We come together in friendship and caring to support one another through the many changes of our lives, to give and receive both love and hope. We hope you’ll join us as we create a diverse, spirit-growing, justice-seeking community that is true to the ideals of each of us.

Organizing for Change: Addressing Classism in Your Faith Community
This interactive, full-day workshop will strengthen your UU congregation as you explore the implications of class and classism, begin the process of becoming less classist and more class inclusive, and organize more effectively across class lines.
•Better understand the strengths and challenges of class differences and of each class background.
•Relate our UU principles to the development of language, concepts, and strategies to understand class differences and issues.
•Consider the intersection between class and race and other issues of oppression, and the relationship between class stereotypes and escalating inequality.
•Increase our effectiveness in building strong class inclusive institutions and learn to avoid the miscommunication and distrust that can weaken our efforts to advance social justice.
