Introduction, Workshop 1: The Call for Awareness

In "Heeding the Call," a Tapestry of Faith program

Who thinks of justice unless he knows injustice? — Diane Glancy, Cherokee poet, from Lone Dog's Winter Count, 1991

Welcome to Heeding the Call! Throughout these workshops, youth explore some of the qualities that help us create a better world and experience how these qualities are reflected in their lives. They are encouraged to grow these qualities and use them in the world.

This workshop helps youth see themselves as social activists or justice makers. It explores the first quality: awareness. Youth become more aware of their personal history of justice work and how awareness can influence their commitment to this work. This workshop also introduces the Justicemakers Guide and other important program elements. Make sure you read the Introduction sections Implementation and Before You Start to help you decide how youth will interact with the guide.
