Alternate Activity 1: UUs in New Orleans
Activity time: 15 minutes
Materials for Activity
- "Reflections on New Orleans" video by the Winchester Unitarian Society
Preparation for Activity
- Watch a 10 minute video produced by the Winchester Unitarian Society on YouTube called "Reflections on New Orleans."
Description of Activity
Youth watch a video that explores the importance of acting when a person believes he/she has a responsibility to do so.
Before beginning the video, encourage youth to think of issues about which they feel passionate. Could they imagine taking on a similar project for their own issue? Watch the video.
Following the video, discussion questions could include:
- What was something that surprised you or touched you in some way?
- Does only helping one or two families rebuild a house make a difference? If so, why? If not, how many people need to be helped before you would consider it "making a difference"?
