Rising Together is the place where we can find each other! Led by Camellia Jahanshahi from the Unitarian Church of Montreal, we gather online seasonally (in October, January, April and July) for themed worship, discussions, and workshop-style activities. Join us for a chance to meet other BIPOC Unitarian Universalists across Canada and nurture our community with the aim of affirming each other and ensuring we have a confident voice in the broader Unitarian Universalist community.
