Reconciliation Within Unitarian Universalism

Please note: Congregational Stories can be found here.

In 2007, the General Assembly of the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) passed a Responsive Resolution entitled, "Truth, Repair, and Reconciliation."

The resolution directed the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) and its constituent congregations to research their histories to uncover links with the genocide of native peoples, slavery, and all types of racial, ethnic, and cultural oppression.

After the resolution was passed, a UUA committee was formed and given the task of reporting on congregations' and the denomination's progress at the 2008 and 2009 General Assemblies.

  • Read coverage of the committee's presentation at the 2008 General Assembly or watch video coverage of the presentation.
  • Read "Truth, Repair, and Reconciliation (PDF, 11 pages): An Initial Review of the Unitarian Universalist Association Record," researched and written by consultant Gordon Gibson, exploring the history of the UUA and its predecessor organizations.  March 1, 2008.

To learn more about the actualization of the 2007 Responsive Resolution, visit the "Truth, Repair, and Reconciliation" section of the UUA's online Leaders' Library.
