    Reflections on Service in New Orleans 5

    Confronting the Work My Privilege Means I Must Do The following is the first of five reflections on a service trip that members of the Unitarian Society of Santa Barbara YRUU group made to New Orleans, LA. The group spent three days in New Orleans and six on the north shore of Lake Ponchartrain, working with local organizations through the Center for Ethical Living and Social Justice Renewal.

    Equalize Privilege and All Will Rise

    What Noah Learned at UU Mid-West Leadership School by Noah Rowan I have privilege. White privilege. Male privilege. Cis-gender privilege. Economic privilege. Until recently, I felt guilty about my privilege. I shoved it down and denied its existence. I waited for someone to reassure me that privilege was a made up phenomenon.
