This year’s annual General Assembly (GA) of the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA), of which we are a member congregation, continues on Thursday, June 25 with four public events.
General Sesssion 2
The second public event, tomorrow, Thursday, June 25 10:30 – 11:45am Pacific, will include the annual report of our UUA President, Rev. Dr. Susan Frederick-Gray. In this session we will also see proponents ask the GA to issue public statements about social issues, called Actions of Immediate Witness. Included this year are statements about white supremacy, race, defunding police, COVID-19, the 13th Amendment to the Constitution, the Thanksgiving holiday, and Facebook. (Later in the GA, our delegates will be voting on these statements.) You can see the details of the proposed statements here:
