Justice-Making as Faith Formation

From a young age, our children and youth are learning what being a Unitarian Universalist means—not just in theory, but in practice. In this webinar, we will talk with experts in the field of religious education and faith development about how justice-making can be a primary pedagogical tool and spiritual practice for children and youth in our Unitarian Universalist congregations. We will pay special attention to faith formation and identity development for children and youth of color, as well as LGBTQIA+ young people.

Executive Director of the Minnesota UU Justice Alliance, Rev. Ashley Horan and Statewide Organizer, Pastor Danny Givens will help all our congregations prepare themselves better for social justice work.
