Announcing the discussion guide to the 2016-2017 UUA Common Read, The Third Reconstruction: How a Moral Movement Is Overcoming the Politics of Division and Fear by William J. Barber II and Jonathan Wilson-Hargrove. Unitarian Universalists were electrified at General Assembly 2016 by Rev. Barber's call to build and sustain a movement for justice for all people; now is the moment for Unitarian Universalists to answer that call.

The Third Reconstruction offers helpful, practical guidance for engaging with justice movements born in response to local experiences of larger injustices. The book challenges us to ground our justice work in moral dissent, even when there is no reasonable expectation of political success, and to do the hard work of coalition building in a society that is fractured and polarized. Now available in paperback!

This discussion guide invites participants to explore and examine important themes in the book like moral dissent and leadership and explores William Barber's framing of the history of fusion movements in the United States and the centrality of race in those movements.
