Available Rooms & SpacesRoom 16


We are excited to be opening up registration for our three Allyship in Action (AIA) covenant groups which will start in January. These groups are only available to people who have taken the Allyship Workshop, and there are a limited number of spaces available since each of the groups will be capped at ten people.

Service Never Sleeps (SNS) developed this AIA group model to facilitate a broader and deeper dive into Allyship. Joining an AIA group will provide you with the opportunity to proactively exercise Allyship in a structured group setting of accountability and support. UUCA will be offering three AIA groups which will be focused on using Allyship to dismantle white supremacy. The AIA groups will be led by UUCA members who have been trained by SNS to lead AIA groups. The AIA groups will last for six months, and are expected to engage at least monthly. Together, you and your AIA group will grow in your ongoing Allyship journeys, and drive effective action towards anti-racism. In addition to the monthly AIA group meetings, there will be an AIA kickoff meeting on Sunday, January 14th from 1-5pm at UUCA which will provide a deeper dive into white surpremacy, and will allow AIA groups to start discussing what you want to accomplish on your Allyship journey over the next six months.

meditation mindfulnessClasses focus on sitting and walking meditation, different aspects of the Buddha’s teachings, and how to bring the practice into everyday life. Classes generally include a guided meditation, a dharma talk and/or experiential exercise. While the classes complement one another, they are also structured as independent from each other – i.e., whatever class you are able to attend should be informative and useful in and of itself. No fee, but donations accepted. Instructor is Jonathan Foust of the Insight Meditation Community of  Washington. See Jonathan's website for more information and class schedule here.
