Oppose a U.S. Attack on Iran
2008 Action of Immediate Witness
Rev. William G. Sinkford meets with the Iranian President
The historic meeting was organized by the Fellowship of Reconciliation. Rev. Sinkford was one of twelve attendees invited to address the Iranian delegation. Read a reflection on the meeting by Adam Gerhardstein, Acting Director of the UUA's Washington Office for Advocacy.
In addition, the Unitarian Universalist Association has a long history of statements on Disarmament, which is a key factor in the tensions between Iran and the United States.
While Iran's pursuit of nuclear weapons is debated around the world, the U.S. has long held the biggest stockpile of
nuclear weapons in the world. The UUA (Unitarian Universalist Association) opposes the proliferation of nuclear
weapons and has passed over forty statements since 1961 dealing with that issue.
Below is an excerpt from our very first statement on the subject:
Disarmament and the Test Ban Treaty
1961 General Resolution
THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED: That the Unitarian Universalist
Association affirms its belief in total universal disarmament under controls and
urges, as an initial step, that the United States Government proceed with
sincere, conscientious and continuing negotiations for a treaty to effectively
ban the development and testing of nuclear weapons.
