Webinars

Join us for occasional webinars on topics that are relevant to all those serving congregations in Membership & Belonging!

 

We are partnering with Mid-America Region to offer you: “Accessibility and Inclusion Issues in Congregational Life”


Opening our doors to people of all abilities is the less talked about test of inclusion in our congregations. This webinar will discuss “disability etiquette” and will explore the many ways in which our congregations can be more accessible and more welcoming to people with a variety of disabilities.


The presenter is our very own Mark Bernstein, Adjunct Staff Member of the Central East Region of the UUA and a member of the UUAMP Board. Mark also serves on the steering committee of the Accessibility and Inclusion Ministry (AIM), a joint program of the UUA and EqUUal Access working to enable the full engagement of people with disabilities and their families in our congregations.
This webinar is being offered twice to accommodate busy schedules.
