With Rev. Ashley Horan & Pastor Danny Givens

Revs Ashley Horan and Danny GivensSecular organizing often has a different set of vocabulary, practices, and strategies for justice making than those with which our congregations are usually familiar. In this webinar, we will draw from the wisdom of non-faith-based organizing and activism, and examine how these tools can be powerfully and relevantly translated into the congregational context. Topics will include practices such as asset mapping, power analysis, one-to-ones, base building strategies, agitation, and more.

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.

With Rev. Ashley Horan & Pastor Danny Givens

Revs Ashley Horan and Danny GivensWhat 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 II of this webinar, participants will share findings about their own congregations’ social justice work through the lens of the assessment model presented in part one. We will then talk about processes and strategies for fostering change and moving toward system-wide integration of justice principles and practices in all areas of congregational life.
