Think “Justice General Assembly” is only about immigration? Think more broadly!
Our most vivid and plentiful learning experiences will be with the immigrant communities of Arizona during GA2012. But it is equally important that the good work of congregations across the country be shared so as to instruct and inspire us.
GA2012 is also about how UUs respond to:
- Racial and class oppression
- Economic injustice
- Environmental racism
- Prison ministries and the criminal justice system
- Demonization and prejudice
- Race and class privilege
- Citizenship and education
- Music and its role in social change
- Political organizing and activism
- Leveraging change through social media
- Religion’s historic role in social change
- Personal skills for cross-cultural engagement
- Story-telling, videography and journaling for change
- Worship and multiculturalism
- Congregationally-based social justice work
- Welcoming in an age of diversity
- Church endowments vs. social need
- Sequestered congregations vs. beloved community
- Religious education’s role in anti-oppression work
- Faith formation and spiritual practice around anti-racism, anti-oppression and multiculturalism.
What would YOU add to that list? The GA Program Development Committee is actively seeking proposals from congregations.
