Where This Issue Is in the Congregational Study/Action Process
Text of Congregational Study/Action Issue: "Peacemaking"
Introduction to this Issue and this Resource Guide
One way to engage in Unitarian Universalist social justice work and further promote liberal religious values is to participate in the UUA's Social Witness process. Together, as congregations and at General Assembly, we articulate and adopt positions on social justice issues, using procedures outlined in the UUA's Bylaws and Rules and facilitated by the UUA's Commission on Social Witness.
Your congregation or district may initiate a Congregational Study/Action Issue, starting the process that leads to a Statement of Conscience. Your General Assembly delegates may initiate Actions of Immediate Witness. Additionally, all congregations are encouraged to participate in studying and acting upon that year's chosen Congregational Study/Action Issue and Actions of Immediate Witness. Hopefully, if you're reading this, you're planning to do just that!
