Activity 2: Personal Experience and Justicemaking (10 minutes), Workshop 4: The Nineteenth Century Women's Peace Movement

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

Materials for Activity

  • Timepiece (minutes)
  • Chime

Description of Activity

Invite participants to consider the ways our personal experiences influence our justicemaking actions. Ask: What experiences have led you to take action on behalf of peace and justice?

Invite participants to quietly recall those who have influenced them in justicemaking work or who have shared justicemaking activities with them. Explain that after two minutes of silence, they will be invited to say aloud the names of those influential people. Ring the chime.

After two minutes, name a person who has influenced you, to model for others to follow. Hold the space until all names are spoken aloud, and then ring the chime again.
