Throughout the six years of America'occupation of Iraq, the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA)
has used its voice to promote accountability,international cooperation,
and the placing of Iraq's future back into the hands of its people. In
2003 the UUA General Assembly adopted an Action of Immediate
Witness (AIW) calling upon Congress to conduct open bi-partisan hearings to examine the moral and legal justifications for the
invasion of Iraq; in 2004 another AIW was passed calling upon the
U.S. to transition from occupation to a complete restoration of Iraqi
sovereignty; and in 2006 another AIW was passed endorsing the
Declaration for Peace campaign and calling for a withdrawal of U.S.
troops. The UUA has carried out these statements by advocated for
an end to this war through the media and on Capital Hill. This war has
had tragic consequences for the people of Iraq, America's soldiers,
and the future of international relations. The UUA is committed to the
enormous amount of work it will take to not just end this war but to begin
to heal the wounds that grow deeper every day.
March 20th marks the sixth anniversary of the invasion of Iraq. Find out how you and your church can recognize the occasion.
