Beloved Stories Video Project

The Challenge: One of the most significant barriers to building beloved community is the contiued occurance of unconscious bias and micro-aggressions experienced by BIPOC members of the First Unitarian Universalist Society of San Francisco congregation.

The Solution: Using the technique of Envisioning with a core set of interview questions, the Team produced an impactful documentary of congregational life of BIPOC members that has made a positive difference in the lives of the community, and has been featured in the "We Built People of Color Visibility with Video" workshop presented at the UU General Assembly in Spokane, WA, 2019.

Envisioning is a process of planning, designing, producing, and sharing video recordings of authentic stories with significant messages that invite action.

Envisioning surfaces and communicates powerful messages of recognition, invitation, aspiration, and inspiration for use in appeals and recruitment, recognition and celebration, campaigns and calls to action within organizations and communities.
