Summer JustWorks Justice Journey
UUSC’s JustWorks Civil Rights Journey Return Engagement Summer 2012!
(This trip is specially tailored to youth and young adults, ages 15–20.)
July 22–29, 2012 you will travel by bus from Atlanta, Ga., to Birmingham, Montgomery, and Selma, Ala. on a trip led by Rev. Hope Johnson of the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Central Nassau, in Garden City, N.Y., and UUSC staff member Sam Jones.
In addition to visiting historic sites, participants will meet some of the courageous people who worked to desegregate schools, register new voters, and bring an end to racial discrimination in the United States. Along the way, participants will learn about the progressive, nonviolent organizing techniques used by civil-rights activists and how those techniques are still being used today — to advance rights for workers, immigrants, and LGBTQ people; to work toward economic justice through the Occupy movement; and more.
The cost for the trip is $600 per person for youth ages 15–20 and $900 for a limited number of adults able to serve as chaperones.
