Introduction, Workshop 12: The Call for Responsible Leadership

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

When you take on some leadership responsibility in the world, you must accept the fact that you will change lives. You will change the status quo by representing justice or compassion or love. And changes spread from you will be easier to happen again in others because of you. — Doris "Granny D" Haddock, political activist who, at the age of 88, walked across the country to raise awareness and gain support for campaign finance reform.

This workshop offers lessons from the Gulf Coast on the meaning of responsible leadership. Youth explore the importance of individuals working together to create justice. The workshop also provides an opportunity for reflection on people who have joined in past struggles for justice. In Activity 3, youth commemorate their ongoing efforts in creating justice and facilitators have an opportunity to thank to the youth for their contributions to the program.
