Tuesday, January 09, 2018, 07:45pm - 09:00pm

Events are local time unless noted. WEBINARS are Eastern time.

MidAmerica RegionMidAmerica Region, UUA and the Minnesota UU Social Justice Alliance present a two-part Webinar, January 9 and February 13, 2018.

What do we do when the Green Sanctuary team and the Racial Justice Task Force and the Housing Advocacy Group and the Immigration Ministry all seem to be in competition with one another for members, resources, and visibility? Without an intersectional analysis—seeing how all systems of oppression are interlinked—we can get caught in patterns of “siloed” social justice work in our congregations that can make us less effective, or even cause harm. In this two-part webinar, we will explore a framework for deeply integrated, system-wide social justice work in the congregation, and think about how to move from single-issue teams toward a more holistic way of living out our commitments to justice.

• In Part I of this webinar, we will present a praxis-based model for assessing our congregations’ current social justice work, how well integrated it is within all areas of congregational life, and what best practices for deeply-rooted, system wide justice commitments might look like. Participants will be introduced to the model, and encouraged to “audit” their congregations following the webinar.

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.

Webinars will be recorded, and will be available on demand for those unable to attend.

7:45 pm Eastern, 6:45 pm Central, 5:45 pm Mountain times.  ZOOM webinar access info will be sent with the registration aknowledgment.
