Learning Objectives, Workshop 10: Taking Politics Public

In "Resistance and Transformation," a Tapestry of Faith program

Participants will:

  • Learn about the Unitarian Universalist Association's (UUA) public stance on the Vietnam War and the military draft, by examining General Assembly resolutions against the war and in support of conscientious objectors and draft resistance
  • Learn how the UUA and some congregations supported the young men who resisted the draft, through a story about the October 16, 1967 draft resistance action at Boston's Arlington Street Church
  • Discover dissenting voices within Unitarian Universalism about the UUA and congregations' support of draft resisters
  • Identify contemporary circumstances and understand the process which might lead their own congregation to publicly adopt a conscience-based, political position.
