In "Families," a Tapestry of Faith program
Bring one of the photo displays from Family Diversity Projects to your area. Engage youth in a conversation about the exposure that diverse families get in your community. What might all families gain if family diversity is valued? Family Diversity Projects has several different photo displays that each emphasize different forms of diversity within families. If you have access to a computer and Internet capability, visit the Family Diversity Projects website with participants. If you don't have Internet capability, show youth the available exhibits that are shown on the pages you printed out. The participants can help decide which diversity issue is most underrepresented in your community and commit to hosting that particular display. This project can also give youth some ideas for their own final photo project.
