Sowing Seeds Youth Justice Workshop
August 3-6, 2022
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.
GROW Fellowship 2022: Portland, Oregon
The GROW Fellowship is a collaboration between the UU College of Social Justice and the UUA’s Thrive Program for Young Adults of Color. This offering is designed to equip 10 UU young adults of color and white UU young adults (ages 18 to 35) with the frameworks, spiritual grounding, and community to engage in justice work within and beyond our Unitarian Universalist faith. The GROW fellows will come together to build community with each other, learn about movement history in Portland, and to craft strategic visions for our ongoing justice work.
UU the Vote Legacy Fellowship Program
As part of UU the Vote, the Unitarian Universalist Association is excited to announce the 2022 Legacy Fellowship to recognize and support the organizers within our faith community carrying on the legacy of organizing and activism. It is an opportunity to support the leadership of Young Adults and Black, Indigenous, and people of color who carry Unitarian Universalist values in their work and engage in a variety of tactics and strategies that advance electoral justice, build capacity in UUism to engage in justice campaigns, and/or build political power in BIPOC communities.
