Stories of social change are stories of communities, in various times and spaces harnessing their hopes, rage, intelligence, technologies, and skills - the power of their very selves - in pursuing a shared sense of the good. Grounded in stories of the past and present, we will imagine towardjust futures for our worlds and think strategies for building and inspiring community power, campaigns, and movements. Drawing from case studies of grassroots movements from enslaved peoples' insurrections to the Indigenous American Occupation of Alcatraz to Black Lives Matter; Octavia Butler-inspired speculative fiction; and contemporary organizers' narratives, we explore the 'why' and 'how' of community organizing and examine ethical means of building collective power. This course assists faith leaders in exploring practical approaches to the pernicious and pervasive socialconcerns that plague our neighborhoods, communities, and world.
