Tuesdays in October - Unitarian Church Evanston
10/2, 10/9, 10/16, 10/23
7 - 9 pm : Radical Hospitality
Radical Welcome workshops were developed by UUPMI to give individuals and congregations some of the tools they need to successfully undertake the work of being a Radically Welcoming Congregation. It’s a day-long experiential training that incorporates the voices of those impacted directly by our prison systems and gives people a background in why we are called as UUs to do this work, active listening skills, how our identity protects us or makes us a target for the prison industrial system, restorative justice practices, and what makes a congregation welcoming.
It is also an opportunity to learn more about the Overground Railroad initiative to support formerly incarcerated people.
Everyone interested in doing In-Prison volunteer work or being part of a Radically Welcoming Congregation team will benefit from this training. To find out when the next Radical Hospitality workshop will be held, please contact us.
