In "Resistance and Transformation," a Tapestry of Faith program
Distribute or project Handout 1, Transformative Relationships — A Map. Distribute Handout 2, Women in the Peace Movement.
Point out that the women listed here are only some of the many women—Unitarian, Universalist and others—who were active reformers in the 19th century. Allow participants a few minutes to examine the map and read the handouts.
Distribute the prepared index cards (some with quotes attached), so each participant has a card with a name. If the group is small, give more than one card to each person. Say:
We're going to move around a bit in order to better understand the connections between the many women listed on these handouts.
Explain the activity:
As you go through the names on the cards, invite participants to refer to the relationship map (projected or handed out) to illustrate friendships and working relationships.
Conclude by inviting participants into conversation, using these questions:
If the group includes participants who cannot move easily from one cluster to another, invite other participants to cluster around them during the activity. Or, gather the group at a large work table for this activity and invite participants to move the index cards into clusters in response to the cues.
