Changing the purposes of the UUA

It has been suggested by the committee on UUA article II bylaws that the purpose of the organization be changed from a service organization to an advocacy organization to “heal historic inequities.”

Historically, the Unitarian Universalist Association was to serve the needs of its member organizations which function for religious, educational, and humanitarian purposes reasons. The draft states that the UUA “will transform the world by our liberating love.” Many have questioned what this sentence means specifically fearing that it opens the door to the political agenda of the board of directors.

In asking for feedback, the committee asks how a person would vote on the proposed change from no to yes on a four point scale and then asks for suggestions. You can read the text by clicking here, and you can provide feedback by clicking here. Feedback is requested by 11/28/22.
