LREDA FACEBOOK GROUP, RESOURCES PORTAL, & DIRECTORY
LREDA Facebook Group & ListServ
All LREDA members (with the exception of friends) have access to our private LREDA Facebook group. This is a covenanted space so you are asked to not share information outside of this group.
When you join the group you are agreeing to abide by this covenant:
"As members of LREDA and members of this group, we covenant to uphold our Code of Professional Practices, online and off.
This group functions in addition to the Unitarian Universalist Religious Educators FB Group where you'll find a rich discussion and shared resources among religious educators, colleagues, and volunteers.
In the LREDA Facebook you'll find discussions of professional issues and shared resources, among members of LREDA (who may be religious educators, ministers, UUA & CUC staff, youth ministry professionals, program assistants, and more).
While members of this group must be current members of LREDA, please remember that online conversations are never really private, and our UU world is small. Know that anything you post could get back to whoever your post is about. Keeping to our Code of Professional Practices will help us all maintain healthy boundaries.
We ask you to not take screenshots or otherwise share posts outside of this group. This ensures that this space remains a safe place for LREDA members to share concerns with covenanted colleagues. Remember this space includes LREDA members who are both ordained and non-ordained, so bear this in mind when posting.
We do allow for anonymous posting in the group. Anonymous posts are reviewed and approved prior to posting by a member of the Board or LREDA Staff. If you see a post that is anonymous, know that there is a recognized need for the post to be anonymous rather than attributed."
LREDA also has a Listserv where you can ask questions or share information.
There is also a UU Religious Educators Facebook Group, for everyone interested in UU Religious Education
