What is Culture/White Supremacy Culture?

In this service, we will be taking a deep dive into how culture works, and how aspects of ‘white culture’ become ‘white supremacy culture.’ Our speaker will use the concepts of time and sense of urgency as a case study in white culture becoming white supremacy culture.

Rica Kaufel, who was born and raised in Germany, graduated from Meadville Lombard Theological School and completed her internship with Orange Coast UU Church this June. Last week she became a Fellowshipped Unitarian Universalist Minister and looks forward to being ordained soon. Rica began her ministry with Unitarian Universalist Church in Anaheim in October of this year. Rica also works as a lecturer for Academic English at UCI, and she frequently volunteers with CCEJ’s Building Bridges Camp, taking teenagers from all over the region to the mountains for a weekend to teach them about systems of oppression and how to dismantle them. Her favorite thing in the world is spending time with her daughter Elise.
