So, just what is happening at Justice GA?
In 2012, workshops, lectures, worship and public witness events will focus on justice issues, including topics such as the spiritual foundations of justice work, the theology of social justice, as well as a more tactical focus on organizing.
Public Witness will be a larger focus, including a "Community Celebration with Partners" on Friday night, and an "Interfaith Witness for Human Rights: Stop the Incarceration and Human Rights Abuses of Migrants!" at the infamous "Tent City" on Saturday night. Events outside will take place in the mornings and evenings when temperatures are more moderate.
There will be a strong focus on immigration in keeping with our commitment to the organizations that have invited us to Phoenix. Programming and action will deal with immigration both specifically and in a broader context of human rights and justice. Congregations will learn to assess their strengths and weaknesses and learn skills for social justice work according to their region, congregation size and resources.
Available now: preliminary programming information: http://www.uua.org/ga/programming/index.shtml
Coming soon: GA Mobile app
Coming in June: GA Program Book (available as a PDF online in June and/or as a hard copy on site)
