Faith CoLab: Tapestry of Faith: Heeding the Call: A Program on Justicemaking for Junior High School Youth

Spiritual Preparation

Take some time to consider your understanding of injustice. Pick up a copy of a local newspaper or check an online news source such as National Public Radio or UU World. Which stories are about injustice from your perspective? Unitarian Universalists have a long history of working for justice. Do any examples of social justice work come to mind? In 2009, the Standing on the Side of Love campaign was launched to promote the inherent worth and dignity of every person, a Unitarian Universalist Principle that informs our social justice work. This campaign asks, "What does 'standing on the side of love' mean to you?" How would you answer this question? How will working with youth influence your understanding of both justice and injustice?
