Taking It Home, Workshop 3: The Response to Slavery

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

As the Unitarian denomination should be ashamed of its antislavery conduct as a religious body, so it should be justly proud of the men and women who as individuals chose love of freedom over thoughts of expediency. — Douglas Stange, in "Patterns of Antislavery among American Unitarians, 1831-1860"

Reflect on the justicemaking work you do in the world. What kind of strategic approach do you generally favor? Are there any changes you would like to make in the way you spend your time, talent, and financial resources in justicemaking efforts?

Consider trying a different strategy or model for justicemaking than you are accustomed to using. You might try using your prophetic voice (writing a letter to the editor is one example), supporting/joining a parallel organization or movement (eating locally is one example), or working within an institution to make change (promoting antiracism education in the congregation is one example).
