What role does the UU BIPOC Group play in adopting the 8th Principle?

The UUCT BIPOC group is a support group for its members. They do not take an advocacy role in the congregation. Allies for Racial Equity (ARE) is the white-identified advocacy group whose mission calls us to: “Confront and dismantle racism and racial inequity in ways that are accountable to communities of color and, in particular, UUCT’s BIPOC group.” Therefore, ARE asked the BIPOC group what actions we might take to benefit UUCT’s BIPOC members and friends, both present and future. BIPOC polled their attendees, who suggested adopting and acting on the 8th Principle, which ARE is now working toward.
