8th Principle

Proposed new 8th principle of Unitarian Universalism:

We, the member congregations of the Unitarian Universalist Association, covenant to affirm and promote: journeying toward spiritual wholeness by working to build a diverse multicultural Beloved Community by our actions that accountably dismantle racism and other oppressions in ourselves and our institutions.

Would you like to learn about the Article II Study Commission’s work to review the Principles and Purposes section of the UUA Bylaws?  And the connection between that work and the 8th Principle?  The Commission has formed an Outreach Team, which is offering Zoom meetings to gather feedback on their work, right now!  Go here for more information and for meeting times and links.

UU the Vote

Climate justice, reproductive rights, honoring treaties, resisting racism and other oppressions, all involve public policy, which involves voting. You may not be into politics, but it’s surely all up in your face this year. Early voting by mail begins this week. WUUSAN invites every Wisconsin UU to engage voters within and beyond our own communities, in collaboration with community partners. Regardless of your time constraints, mobility, or tech skills, you are valuable and needed to help reach every potential voter. Check us out & subscribe to updates .

Side With Love

Side with Love is a public advocacy campaign that seeks to harness love’s power to stop oppression. It is sponsored by the Unitarian Universalist Association and all are welcome to join. Subscribe to get updates and learn more here.
