In "Resistance and Transformation," a Tapestry of Faith program
Invite participants to consider any social justice activities they are involved with personally or through the congregation that depend on their right to free speech or freedom of expression. What insights or cautions from the responses of Unitarians in the McCarthy Era offer help with today's social justice work? Join your congregation's efforts on a free speech or freedom of expression project.
And/or, work with your congregation's formal or informal historians to discover congregational stories and additional information from the McCarthy Era. Post the list of questions created during Activity 1 or generate a new list of questions about the era and your congregation's responses; assign volunteers to research the answers. Arrange a time and a process for researchers to report their findings to the group and to the congregation as a whole.
Note: FBI files on congregations are available through the Freedom of Information Act. A request for information on your congregation might turn up some interesting events. Consider contacting the FBI and making this request.
