GROW Fellowship Fall 2022
Grounded and Resilient Organizer Workshop is a virtual cohort of cultural workers, organizers and clergy (ages 18-25) who are engaged in campaigns, base-building, art making and community care for justice. Together, we’ll build community and solidarity, study social movements and imagine new worlds. Our mission is to bolster our social movements with organizers and cultural workers who are accountable, spiritual grounded and rooted in radical imagination. GROW is for you if you’re discerning your place in social movements for justice, if you want a community of people to struggle with that aren’t connected with your paid work, if you want to infuse your justice work with a deeper spiritual practice. Come grow, struggle, build, and celebrate with us.
At the end of the fellowship, all active participants will receive a stipend of $250 as thanks for their participation. Repeating for emphasis, this program is FREE to attend for all participants.

Sowing Seeds Youth Justice Workshop

Join the UUA, UU College of Social Justice and other high school age youth for a 4-day experiential workshop to deepen our justice work as young UU’s. Our time together will be spent two fold: the first will be to get out and about in Pittsburgh – learning about its social movement landscape, the second will be exploring themes of change, resilience and organizing through creative arts and practices. We’ll leave with new spiritual practices, new collaborators and hope about what we can accomplish together.
