WHEREAS, the Unitarian Universalist Association has repeatedly affirmed its
stand for school integration and as recently as April, 1970, the Board of
Trustees of the UUA expressed dismay at the continued resistance to school
integration and has stood for use of public funds for public schools; and
WHEREAS, the new church-sponsored private schools are, in many cases, seeking
state and federal aid;
NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED: That the Ninth General Assembly of the
Unitarian Universalist Association deplores the development of segregated
private church-related schools, and petitions the Department of Health,
Education and Welfare and Office of Education to deny any federal funds to such
schools, and further urges the Internal Revenue Service to deny granting income
tax deductions for contributions to such schools.
