UUA SRI Activities
Since our initial foray into socially responsible investing (SRI) more than 40 years ago, the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) has remained steadfast in its commitment to SRI. For our first initiative in 1966 we joined with other religious organizations to successfully challenge Eastman Kodak’s racially discriminatory hiring practices. Since that time have engaged in a variety of initiatives that have helped shape our diverse program.
Today the UUA is constantly engaged in SRI activities. Through shareholder resolutions, positive and negative screening, proxy voting, and community investment, the UUA's SRI programs and policies reach all facets of the organization—from your congregation, to the UU World magazine, to social justice initiatives, to even the financial planning of our Unitarian Universalist (UU) ministers.
The UUA's Committee on Socially Responsible Investing was established in June of 2000 by the UUA Board of Trustees.
The UUA’s Endowment Fund is “invested in a manner consistent with the UUA Socially Responsible Investing Guidelines.”
