In the face of profound climate disruption, racial injustice and economic inequality, people of faith are called be change agents, co-creators of more equitable, sustainable and life-giving communities. How does change occur, for individuals and larger systems? What particular gifts can faith leaders and communities bring to this work? How can our justice ministries be more effective, meaningful and sustainable? Students in this class will: 1) engage with different theories of change, 2) learn from historic and current movements for justice, 3) become acquainted with Unitarian Universalist, interfaith, faith/labor, legislative, and organizing networks and leaders, 4) develop more capacity to inspire, organize, analyze, structure, resource, sustain, and pastor effective justice ministries. Each student will have the opportunity to explore a justice issue of their choice, applying the concepts and tools they learn in class.
