WEEK FIVE

Welcome
Kimberly Vrudny welcomes attendees to the fifth session on “Becoming Human.”

Video: Mobilizing for Social Change
Dr. Michael Klein, Associate Professor of Justice and Peace Studies at the University of St. Thomas, searches his family’s stories and Minnesota’s history as a means to enter humbly into engagement across lines of difference.

Activity
In order to find where your greatest gladness meets the world’s deepest need (Frederick Buechner), fill out this survey from Stanford University. You’ll receive a visualization that will help you know where to put your gifts and resources to work to end structural racism. Afterwards, translate your results onto the social change wheel.

Reflection
“We make the road by walking.” Reflect on how we will learn about the relationship between who we are (identity) and how we work for change (agency); how we will connect the work we do to the work of others across identities, strategies, and movements; and how we will connect intrapersonal, interpersonal, community, and systemic change.
