Readings, Videos, and Activities to Prepare for General Assembly
General Assembly

General Assembly in New Orleans will awaken and deepen the commitment of Unitarian Universalists to the power and possibility of working in solidarity with those on the margins. Below are resources to help you prepare to enter fully into that experience. Do at least one of the suggested activities in each of five categories. Then, print this booklet and record what you did on the back cover. Bring your list to the UUA Expressway at GA and receive your very own ribbon! If you will not be present in-person at GA, but would like to share what you did, please email adultprograms [at] uua [dot] org.
