Socially Responsible Investing (SRI) ensures that our investments are consistent with the values of the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA). The UUA has been strongly committed to SRI for over forty years. Our commitment springs from our faith, and from our deep conviction in the dignity of all human beings. The UUA is constantly engaged in SRI activity from shareholder advocacy, to community investing, to affordable housing and other justice initiatives.
SRI offers Unitarian Universalists (UUs) opportunities to work for justice, equity and compassion in human relations. From advocating for benefits for same-sex couples, to finding protections for the environment, and ensuring a better world for consumers and employees alike.
UUs at our annual business meeting, General Assembly, have passed several resolutions having to do with socially responsible investing. 1972's General Assembly called for "Social Responsibility in the Investment of Endowment Funds," in yet another business resolution. The next year, in 1973, a resolution entitled "Corporate Social Responsibility and UUA Investments", was passed, urging the UUA promote better corporate social policies and practices in areas such as equal employment opportunity for women and minorities, environmental protection, consumerism, foreign investment and military production.
Ongoing SRI work continues with these major planned activities:
