Business Resolution

WHEREAS the Moderator of the Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations endorsed and advocated supporting full equality of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender individuals, which constituted a substantive portion of her report to the Assembly, and by her social witness action of requesting that the full General Assembly of delegates attend and witness at Minneapolis Pride, on Saturday, June 26, following Plenary Session IV; and

WHEREAS the Committee on Right Relations specifically invoked the inherent worth and dignity of transgender individuals as a substantive portion of its report during the business meeting of the General Assembly 2010 in Plenary Session IV; and

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the 2010 General Assembly affirms its commitment to the inherent worth and dignity of every human being, including lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender individuals; and

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that we express this spiritual value through our employment practices, educational efforts, congregational life, public witness, and immediate advocacy for the passage of the inclusive Employment Non-Discrimination Act; and

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that we encourage member congregations and societies to act within their congregations and communities to promote and educate the importance of employment equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender individuals.
