Accessibility

Unitarian Universalism is committed to making our congregations and resources accessible to all, so that people living with physical, sensory, emotional, and cognitive disabilities can fully participate in our worship, service, and leadership.

The principles of our faith call us to affirm “the inherent worth and dignity of every person”, and to promote “justice, equity, and compassion in our human relationships.” These principles help us understand that making our faith accessible means not only improving our buildings and our programs, but our hearts as well.

Our accessibility goal is to totally welcome people with disabilities in every facet of our activities. Because some congregations have come closer to this goal than others, we ask that you contact your local congregation with any questions you might have about accessibility there. You may find that they are surprisingly able to make accommodations to meet your individual requests.

If you would like to learn more about Unitarian Universalism but cannot read regular print, we offer our UU World magazine and some of our books about Unitarian Universalism in tape or electronic formats. If you are hard of hearing and wish to visit a congregation that does not have an assistive listening system we have listening equipment that you can borrow.

To access the resources listed above, or if you have questions about accessibility within Unitarian Universalism, please call (617) 948-6475. If you have questions about Unitarian Universalism and would like to speak with someone on the phone, please call (617) 948-4652.

For more information contact web @ uua.org.

This work is made possible by the generosity of individual donors and congregations. Please consider making a donation today.
