Crossing Cultural Boundaries

A Training Class Taught by

Rev. Karen Mooney, Co-director

Unitarian Universalist Advocacy Network of Illinois (UUANI)

Three Sundays in 2023
February 12, March 12, & April 16
1:30-4:30 p.m.

For three years the UUFD Live Love (formerly Vote Love) team has met to study, discuss, and act on issues of social justice. We are proud to extend an opportunity to UUFD members & friends to join us attending the three-session class "Crossing Cultural Boundaries." The UU Advocacy Network of IL offers this class for FREE. It will be taught by Rev. Karen Mooney, a Co-Director at UUANI.
The class will help participants explore their internal beliefs, preconceptions, strengths, and weaknesses in a supportive and brave-space environment of respectful, covenanted listening and learning. The need to deepen our consciousness about internal bias when interacting with people of different backgrounds is an on-going journey. This class is a tool to strengthen us in our faithful work to address racism.
Course Expectations:
Prerequisites for the class include a good faith effort to attend all three class sessions in person at UUFD. There is homework for the first session which will be sent to you in 2023 once you RSVP.  Homework will need to be completed prior to each class. The materials are engaging and require about an hour or so of reading and writing for each class.
Rev. Mooney wants to be as flexible as possible to encourage participation. Therefore, acknowledging that we all have possible conflicts, the following are true only when wholly necessary:
  • It's OK to arrive late / leave early;
  • It's OK to Zoom in if you are ;geographically distant but please contact organizers;
  • It's OK to miss one of the sessions if an impossible conflict arises.

Please contact organizers (Rev. Linda 815-501-4788 or Toni Tollerud 815-501-4784) if any of these situations arise.

If you are interested in joining us, please register by calling the UUFD Church Office Manager at 815-756-7089 or emailing her at You can also contact  Rev. Linda Slabon at 815-501-4788. Registration deadline is January 15, 2023.
