This offering is designed to equip 20 UU young adults of color and white UU young adults (ages 18-35) with the skills, spiritual grounding, and community to engage in justice work within and beyond our Unitarian Universalist faith. It has been scheduled for the months leading up to and after big 2020 elections to build our skills, relationships, and power in ways that can be of use to continuing this work for the long haul.
In a few different touch points throughout the months, we’ll explore theories and praxis of governance, time, conflict, imagination and economy/ecology through case studies, spiritual praxis, role plays and building transformative relationships. The fellows will come together to learn community organizing skills from bold, grounded leaders, and to craft a strategic vision for our justice work in the coming year. A stipend will be available to all who are accepted into the program and who commit to a shared level of participation. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis until July 5th. We will follow up with all applicants by July 20th and will schedule our weekly justice workouts and other touchpoints in consultation with all who are accepted. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
