Claiming our Fullness

June 9, 2023, 1-3pm ET/12-2pm CT/11am-1pm MT/10am-12pm PT

The seventh in our Supporting Neurodivergence in Our Congregations Skill Up series, this webinar will explore the intersectionality of being BIPOC and neurodivergent. Both of these identities require navigating systems that were not meant for them. Rev. Marisol CaballeroAyanni Kafi, and Mackenzie McDade will share their experiences of coming to understand themselves as BIPOC neurodivergent people and share the interplay of expectations and stereotypes they have encountered. Together, we will wonder how our UU communities can be spaces where people can engage the fullness of themselves.


We will have a live viewing at at 1pm ET/12pm CT/11am MT/10am PT followed by a Q&A at 2pm ET/1pm CT/12pm MT/11am PT on June 9. Registered participants can submit their questions ahead of time via this form and receive a recording of the Q&A afterwards whether or not they’re able to attend the live viewing and Q&A.

Registration fees are on a sliding scale, based on your assessment of your ability to pay. The cost is $25 per session. Those who pay at the two highest levels are making a donation to help those in financial need for this event. Please remember that for a sliding scale to work, we need the same number of people with means to generously pay more to balance the needs of those who can afford less. This is how we build the Beloved Community.

Registration sliding scale:

$0 - $10 - $25 - $35 - $50
