Location: Mt. Diablo UU Church, Please Register for Zoom Link

Join us for the premier screening Saturday, May 18 3 p.m. of my new documentary, Invisible No More: Asian Pacific Islanders in Unitarian Universalism. Filmed and edited in six U.S. cities over the last two years, this 45-minute documentary will be shown at Mt. Diablo Universalist Church in Walnut Creek. Zoom info will be available at website.

This project is the result of a long-held dream that Unitarian Universalist congregations would have a tool to reach unchurched people of color, especially Asian Pacific Islanders in major metro areas. Through the generous support of the UU Funding Program, the Pacific Western Region, key congregations and individuals, I have interviewed API UUs about their experiences in our faith and their dreams for the future. What they say may surprise you!

If you would like to reach out to the API community in your area, the film could serve as a launching pad for discussion and institutional change. The screening and study guide are available as “self-serve” tools or if you prefer, I am available to present the film and lead discussions.

Please provide date(s) when you would like to schedule such a session, either live or hybrid on zoom. I would be happy to work with you and your antiracism/BIPOC group to organize and publicize this.

I believe there are many unchurched people of Asian Pacific Islander descent who are yearning for the beloved community in our faith. Thank you for sharing this widely with your networks.

In faith and struggle,
Vivien Hao
