Who We Are
We shorten our long name to UUMUAC, which we pronounce YOU-me-ack. UUMUAC exists to fight racism by fostering multiracial unity. We are committed to the Seven Principles of Unitarian Universalism as the only tools required for this work.
To our dismay, a controlling majority of national Unitarian Universalist (UU) officials--in the UUA, the UU Ministers Association, and both UU seminaries--are promoting a different approach to fighting racism, using the slogan "dismantle our white supremacy culture." While the officials claim their approach will reduce racism, we are convinced that it can only make racism worse.
Our membership is mostly white, but we have Blacks in our leadership. Our founder, the Rev. Dr. Finley C. Campbell, is a Black Baptist minister and longtime UU who is a near-contemporary of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. He has seen first-hand which tactics work to reduce racism and which do not.
