Congratulations to Rev. Colin Bossen and Rev. Julia Hamilton, authors of the newest Tapestry of Faith program, Resistance and Transformation: Unitarian Universalist Social Justice History!

This meticulously researched program consists of 16, 90-minute workshops that can each be extended to two hours. The workshops revolve around the stories of Unitarian, Universalist, or Unitarian Universalist people and congregations' involvement in social justice struggles, moving beyond familiar stories into a deep exploration of our history. It provides an opportunity for those who are interested in transformative justice work to delve into primary source material, to hear stories less commonly told but just as important, and to make connections between this history and modern Unitarian Universalist practice. Themes include abolition, peace-making, civil rights, free speech, utopianism, counter-culture, women’s movements, sexuality education, and GLBT equality.
