Sample Covenant for Congregational Accessibility

Covenant on the Accessibility of Unitarian Society of Hartford Meetings, Programs, and Events

We, the members and friends of the Unitarian Society of Hartford (USH), covenant to affirm and promote:

  • The ability of USH members and friends, adults and children, to participate in USH meetings, programs, and events is founded on our belief in the inherent worth and dignity of every person;
  • The ability of USH members and friends, adults and children, to participate in USH meetings, programs, and events is rooted in our belief in treating everyone with justice, equity, and compassion;
  • The accessibility of USH meetings, programs, and events to the extent that those who wish to participate are able to do so, within the best of our ability;
  • The good faith collaboration and cooperation of groups who are sponsoring meetings, programs, and events with the Disabilities Sub-Council to assess the accessibility of planned events;
  • The good faith collaboration and cooperation of groups sponsoring programs, meetings, or events with the Disabilities Sub-Council to create and/ or recommend accommodations to provide accessibility for those who request it to the extent reasonably possible;
  • The good faith collaboration and cooperation of groups sponsoring programs, meetings, and events with the Board of Directors, Councils and  Sub-Councils of USH to foster an atmosphere of acceptance, respect, and welcome.

The Unitarian Society of Hartford affirms and promotes a theology of wholeness and justice. Accessibility is about social justice, acceptance, and the ability of every person to participate in the life of our congregation—in worship, in leadership, in study, in community building, in service.  And so may it be.
