In "A Place of Wholeness," a Tapestry of Faith program
Participants build a giant pride rainbow banner and envision how to use that banner to help fight for justice for Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender people.
Tell or read the story, "The Pride Rainbow Project." Invite everyone to do what this group of youth from Canada did and make a giant pride rainbow banner. Review the different steps of the project and have volunteers commit to specific tasks.
After everyone has their tasks, but before they get started, point out the newsprint you have posted. Tell participants that as they work they should talk with each other about what kinds of action they can take with the banner to bring greater justice and equity to GLBT people. When they come up with a good idea they should write it down on one of the pieces of newsprint.
Once you have given these instructions set them to their tasks.
As the project nears its end, some people may not have anything to do. Ask these people to go through the list of action ideas and start to group similar ideas together. Once the similar ideas have been grouped, tell everyone they each get three votes. They can vote by using a marker to draw a dot next to the top three ideas that they would like to see happen. Collect the top two or three ideas and discuss how to make these happen.
