Unitarian Universalist Fellowship In Mt. Kisco Hosts Undoing Racism Workshop


In the Fall of 2014, Reverend Kym McNair, Associate Minister at Antioch Baptist Church in Bedford Hills, was excited to receive an invitation to attend a workshop at Fox Lane on diversity, racism and white privilege. Unfortunately, pushback from a vocal part of the community forced School Superintendent Dr. Jere Hochman to cancel the initiative and local clergy like herself decided that engaging in the vitriole was not conducive to advancing the best possible outcome.
"You don't want to be the loudest voice in a shouting match," said McNair, and when the Northern Westchester Interfaith Council hosted their own workshop in early May, her hope is that the necessary conversation got a beginning and won't stop there.
