Taking It Home, 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

Notice in your own life where you participate—or could participate—in activities that promote multicultural competence. Explore and make a list of opportunities that present themselves and practical things you can do in order to accomplish the following:

  • Develop personal cultural awareness of groups and people who are not like you
  • Acquire specific knowledge about individuals and groups from other cultures and affiliations
  • Maintain a receptive attitude and openness to all forms of diversity
  • Build your cross-cultural and multicultural communication skills
  • Cultivate a passion for multicultural settings and intercultural engagement.
