  • To meet with old and new colleagues among the Unitarians and Unitarian Universalists of Kenya, Uganda, Nigeria and South Africa;
  • To learn from leaders of social justice and human rights organizations involved in diverse struggles, including: LGBT Rights, HIV/AIDS, Slavery, Women's Rights, and Anti-Privatization;
  • To visit the UNESCO World Heritage site and witness to the Atlantic Slave Trade: Île de Gorée.
