Description of Activity
Read or tell the story to the group.

Lead a discussion using these questions:
- How do you think the efforts of all the Unitarian Universalists who participated in the No More Turning Away project made a difference in the world?
- How do you think being involved in the project made a difference in the lives of the UUs who participated?
- Have you ever worked with a big group of people on a project? Participated in a big march or vigil about something that mattered to you? How did it feel?
