noonprop8History of  Social Justice in Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations
Unitarian and Universalist Social Justice work began when the faiths began—hundreds of years ago. It is both impossible and undesirable to separate Unitarian and Universalist history from the social and political movements of the years. When the Unitarians and the Universalists merged in 1961, the resulting Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations (UUA) inherited a proud legacy of social justice activism.

 

The Association has taken positions of social witness, resulting in Statements and Resolutions on a wide variety of topics including:

 

  • Aging

  • Civil Liberties

  • Criminal Justice

  • Economic Justice

  • Immigration

  • Racial Justice

  • Environmental Justice

  • Equal Opportunity

  • Human Rights and Justice

  • International Peace and Conflict
