Introduction, Workshop 7: Resistance
In "Building the World We Dream About," a Tapestry of Faith program
The work of building a just community means individually and collectively working in right relationship with people of historically marginalized groups and holding ourselves accountable for changing the things that create injustice. — Paula Cole Jones, contemporary Unitarian Universalist educator and antiracism trainer
This workshop presents contemporary stories involving Unitarian Universalist young adults that illustrate different approaches to resisting racism and systems of privilege and strengthening multicultural competency skills.
Participants work in groups to create skits that illustrate day-to-day scenarios involving issues of race and privilege, and consider how to become better able to respond to similar situations they encounter in their own lives.
Before leading this workshop, review the accessibility guidelines in the program Introduction under Integrating All Participants.
This work is made possible by the generosity of individual donors and congregations. Please consider making a donation today.
