Taking It Home, Workshop 1: Telling Our Story: Multiple Truths and Multiple Realities

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

What is true is that for Unitarian Universalism to move into a vibrant future, we will need to mine our past for stories of resistance to oppression, stories of openness to new ways of being religious, stories of transformation that have built new understandings into our narrative of who we are. — Rev. William G. Sinkford, past president of the Unitarian Universalist Association

An important part of multicultural competency is being an astute observer of cultural messages about who belongs and who doesn't. Practice noticing situations where people matter, and where they are marginalized, due to perceptions based on race or ethnicity. If you are the person being marginalized in a particular situation, how do you choose to respond? If you observe another person being marginalized, how do you choose to respond? You might blog, take pictures, or create a video journal to share your observations with others in the group.
