Forum: General Assembly 2019
May 12, 2019 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
The principle issue currently on the 2019 UUA agenda is to vote on a 4- page Statement of Conscience on “Our Democracy, Uncorrupted.” This statement can be viewed or downloaded from this location:
This statement touches on many of the issues that I know are close to the hearts of Gaians: the ugly persistence of structures of white power and supremacy throughout the US, including government at every level; the role of money in government; and many other social justice issues. As a congregation, we may be able to vote on whether or not the entire UUA organization should adopt this statement; more importantly, as citizens we should all review the content, including suggestions for action, and consider the extent to which we, the congregation, individually and collectively stand behind the adoption of this extremely meaning expression of our own consciences. I strongly urge members to review this statement and come prepared for a lively and heartfelt discussion about what aspects of this statement mean to us. Printed copies of the statement will be available, but as much as possible, let’s minimize the massacre of trees in this effort.
