Materials for Activity

Preparation for Activity

  • Review Handout 1 and make copies for participants.
  • Plan to invite three volunteers to read the definitions in the handout aloud.

Description of Activity

Tell participants they will begin looking at different strategies for social justice work and examine a few case studies from Unitarian Universalist history.

Distribute Handout 1, Prophetic, Parallel, and Institutional Voices and invite participants to read it. Enlist three volunteers to read the definitions of each of the three approaches aloud.

Explain that they will examine these strategies one at a time, looking at a case study for each. Point out that the term "voice" can refer to either the voice of one person or the collective voice of a group representing one agenda.
