The Complexities of Allyship

Visiting Minister: Rev. Lois Van Leer
Lay Leader: Rev. Leslie Ahuvah Fails
Music: Laurel Holmes

This Sunday, we take a deep breath. We have been engaged in a labor of love and spirit, working to expand Fairbanks equal rights ordinance to include LGBTQ people. Now our thoughts turn to what comes next. What does it mean to be an ally in the fight against white supremacy and the battle for transgender rights? Who does the most harm — the public bigot or the knee jerk liberal? Is being an ally enough?

Rev. Lois Van Leer is the minister of the Unitarian Universalist Church in Eugene, Oregon
