Report from UUA General Assembly
General Assembly (GA) is the annual gathering of the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA), where delegates from member congregations conduct the business of our Association, and where all UUs are invited to gather and explore the theological underpinnings of our faith and lean fully into our mission and principles.
This year GA was held virtually again, from June 23–27. More than 4,000 individuals registered, and many more UUs attended selected programs open to the public. The business agenda included voting on business such as bylaws amendments, electing UUA Board members and others, and deciding on Actions of Immediate Witness, a Statement of Conscience, and Responsive Resolutions.
Three 2021 Actions of Immediate Witness were proposed, and all were affirmed:
- Defend and Advocate with Transgender, Nonbinary, and Intersex Communities (PDF)
- The COVID-19 Pandemic: Justice. Healing. Courage (PDF)
- Stop Voter Suppression and Partner for Voting Rights and a Multiracial Democracy (PDF)
The Assembly also voted to adopt the Statement of Conscience, Undoing Intersectional White Supremacy (PDF).
