All business of the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) General Assembly (GA) is conducted in Plenary sessions. Mini-Assemblies offer opportunities in small sessions for delegates to speak on issues, find out more about individual business items before a vote in plenary, and propose amendments to the business item or social witness statement. The Board of Trustees or the Commission on Social Witness may move amendments to business items as a result of discussion in Mini-Assemblies.
All times are local, Mountain Standard Time (not Mountain Daylight Time), which is the same as Pacific Daylight Time. Late arriving items may require rearrangement of the agenda as published.
Public Witness is a cherished General Assembly tradition, and at this year’s Justice GA we had a more ambitious public witness program than ever before. Check the full GA Program for all witness opportunities.

No vote is taken this year on the Congregational Study/Action Issue (CSAI) that was chosen at the 2010 General Assembly (Immigration as a Moral Issue).
Five proposed CSAIs appear on the Final Agenda as a result of the 2012 Congregational Poll. Discussion of these CSAIs took place in a workshop on Thursday. One issue (CSAI 3: Reproductive Justice: Expanding Our Social Justice Calling) was chosen for study and action during the coming four years in a run-off vote during Plenary IV after their presentation during Plenary III.
Actions of Immediate Witness will not be considered at the 2012 General Assembly. Read the report from UU World: Delegates Vote to Eliminate AIWs at 2012 Justice GA.
