From Farmworker Reality Days to UU Borders trips, UUJM is a leader in providing experiential learning opportunities on important issues of the day. All of our programs are UU-grounded and aimed at connecting individuals to impacted communities in a way that helps us build long-lasting, meaningful connections. There is also a strong focus on next steps so that when you leave our program, you know how you can get engaged and take it to the next level.
Based on feedback from clergy and lay-leaders alike, this three-session program is one-of-a-kind and aimed at helping congregations identify their strengths and areas of growth, clearly define their congregations core grounding for justice work, develop a strong, well-grounded process for engaging in effective, congregationally-based justice ministry and establish ways to work toward Beloved Community through effective, values-based outreach that is accountable and in right-relationship.
