Revising Article II of the UUA Bylaws: Initial Draft
Online Feedback Sessions November 5, 6, 8, 9 10, 12, 13 & 14 at various times, by registration
The UUA bylaws were adopted in 1961, when the American Unitarian Association merged with the Universalist Association. These bylaws have been changed and added to since that time, but the last revision was in 1987.
Article II is the part of our UUA bylaws that addresses our principles, purposes, non-discrimination and freedom of belief. The Article II Study Commission was charged at the General Assembly in 2019 to “propose any revisions that will enable our UUA, our member congregations, and our covenanted communities to be a relevant and powerful force for spiritual and moral growth, healing and justice.”
You can find the Article II Study Commission’s draft of the revised Article II here, as well as a list of the upcoming online Feedback Sessions. We encourage you to register for and attend one of the eight Zoom sessions to gather more information and give your feedback.
These are big changes. There will be more opportunities for conversation at UUC later this fall.
Please reach out to Meta Thayer with questions or concerns. (You can find her contact info in UUC Connect.)
