This workshop will share the stories of such exemplary activists as Methodist abolitionist Richard Allen, Catholic community builder Dorothy Day, Quaker pacifist Bayard Rustin, and pagan environmentalist Starhawk. Each drew prophetic inspiration from their own tradition and from transformative encounters with other activists. Come learn their stories  Includes lunch.
