Congregational Study/Action Issues (CSAIs)
We are stronger together. Our combined efforts to make the world more fair and humane can accomplish more than any one of us working alone. As Unitarian Universalists, we set priorities for our social justice efforts by investing in key issues that exemplify our commitments to justice, equity and compassion. Learn more about the social witness statement process.
The UUA is re-thinking how the Association does social witness work—and your voice is important. Share your ideas by going to the Vision for Social Witness forum.

Deadline for proposing an issue is OCTOBER 1, 2017. The Proposer’s Guide provides details on appropriate issues, format, and process.
