This weekend-long justice event is a collaboration between several Unitarian Universalist groups - the UU Prison Ministry of Illinois, the UU Action Network of Illinois, and the Youth & Young Adult Visioning Team. Our goals are to build power through affirming our collective story. We want to educate and agitate our faith community so that we can better contribute to movements working to abolish unjust systems. We will weave a narrative that includes a drastic reduction in our prison population, a fossil free world and a fair economic world. We recognize that dreaming sharing a larger vision can dramatically sustain us in this work. We affirm the value of multigenerational communities engaged in this work in our congregations and beyond.
