Community Action Circle

Our next Community Action Circle will be guided by current campaigns to #FreeThemAll in resistance to the intersecting systems of violence created by policies of criminalization, detention and deportation. There will be some especially timely national actions we will take together this week in support of immigration justice, and to help get us oriented to what’s happening in Washington, the Circle will include a short briefing by UUSC’s Policy Analyst  Josh Leach. Given how powerfully rooted current campaigns are in local communities, we will also look at examples of state and local initiatives that need our support and may be replicated elsewhere.

Resocializing for the Revolution

We are all having an experience of living through massive social changes. Whether you are taking to the streets, working inwardly, or working within institutions to confront the behaviors, ideas, and structures that uphold systems of oppression, taking time for reflection is vital to our long term commitment. Regularly reconstructing our narrative about our goals and theories of change, especially when done within a community of support, can make the difference between long term engagement versus quick burn out.

Join UUCSJ program leader Claudia Espinel and UUCSJ staff member Gina Collignon for this 75 minute workshop to develop tools that will help you reflect on your experience with direct actions, understand your physical and emotional reactions, and increase awareness and flexibility towards your worldview.
