Introduction, Workshop 3: You Are How You've Lived: Exploring Individual and Group Identity

In "Building the World We Dream About," a Tapestry of Faith program

I believe that many Unitarian Universalists need to reconcile the moment in their lives when they first felt inferior to someone or something and how that moment has shaped and influenced their lives. — Rev. Monica Cummings, minister to Unitarian Universalist Youth and Young Adults of Color

Workshop 3 builds on the reflective storytelling of "marginalizing and mattering" experiences and establishes a foundation for future discussions about race. Individually and in small and large groups, participants will explore the concept of identity, defined as "something without which you'd 'miss what being human is for you.'" Participants will further explore how a person's perspective on a situation or event might be influenced by their experiences and by the various identities they claim.

Before leading this workshop, review the accessibility guidelines in the program Introduction under Integrating All Participants.
