Kara moved to Colorado in 2006 to study at Northern Colorado and Colorado State earning her Masters in Music Therapy. She works as a music therapist and music educator in the Fort Collins area. She joined Foothills in the Fall of 2017. While still new to Unitarian Universalism, the message of spreading courageous love is what resonated most with her. She enjoys furthering that message with families at Foothills through moving, playing instruments and singing. When not making music, she tries to spend time hiking, skiing, running or reading as many books as she can.

What is “White Fragility?”
March 14 @ 7:00 am - 8:00 pm
Earlier this month, during the second service in our True and False series, Rev. Gretchen told the story of how Theodore Parker — a great abolitionist Unitarian minister in the 19th century — was also convinced of the supremacy of the white race. The way that people have come to think about race — in our country, and culture — is a great example of how our brains can justify our preconceived notions under the guise of rationality and reason.
This Thursday evening we’re holding a conversation that gets at some of these faulty ideas we have around race. Ministerial Resident Kristen Psaki will be leading a conversation around “white fragility” — a phrase coined by researcher Dr. Robin DiAngelo. Join us first for vespers beginning at 6:15 where we can take a moment of pause before diving into this important conversation.
