Justice Leadership Jubilee is an intentional ten-month commitment for adults who want to develop their faith and learn systemic change skills with a community of their peers. The year includes training, spiritual sojourning, working within a social change agency and church engagement in justice issues. The cohort will gather for social justice trainings about once a month and for spiritual reflection once a month. Each participant will work to integrate these reflections and learnings into their church community and their weekly work with a social change agency. This is a non-residential program.
Each season of the year offers a particular focus. The fall focuses on relationship and analysis building, including deep learning around structural oppression and forms of social change. Winter will be a season of advocacy (national, state and local levels), with a focus on understanding power through a Christian lens. Spring focuses on reflection and action by looking at social movements throughout history, with special attention to nonviolent theory, communication and action.
