Radical Hospitality Workshop 101
April 22 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm
The UU Prison Ministry of Illinois will be leading the Radical Hospitality Workshop 101 on Saturday, April 22, 9:00 am to 1:00 pm at Unitarian Church of Evanston, 1330 Ridge Avenue, Evanston, IL, 60201. The workshop was developed by the UUPMI to give individuals and congregations some of the tools they need to successfully undertake the work of being a Radically Welcoming Congregation.
The workshop will examine the ways that the prison industrial complex is more than just prisons and jails. There will be an opportunity to explore transformative justice and the relationship between UU theology and the criminal legal system. The four-hour experiential training incorporates the voices of formerly incarcerated people and gives attendees a background in why we are called as UUs to do this work.
