Unitarian Universalist Peace Fellowship
The UU Peace Fellowship (UUPF) envisions a world of justice, peace and freedom. IT is a vision of a beloved community, where diversity is respected, where conflicts are addresses nonviolently, and oppressive structures have been eliminated. It is a world where we live in harmony with each other, with all sentient beings, and with the earth, nurtured by diverse spiritual traditions that are based on compassion and loving kindness toward all. We are committed to increase public awareness of the philosophy and strategies of nonviolence, especially our rich Unitarian Universalist history of peace activism. We aim to strengthen and support district and congregational activities, in partnership with other faith-based groups, to bring about the psychological, social, economic and religious conditions for peace. Soon, we hope to have a UUPF representative for each congregation. We encourage and support conscientious objection, the personal opposition to war of any kind. Each year, at General Assembly, UUPF presents the Adin Ballou Peace Award, honoring individuals and organizations for their deep commitment to peace and justice.
Officers: Rev. Dennis Davidson, president; John Ely, secretary; Tom Atchison, treasurer. For further information, please contact Rev. Davidson at the above address.
