Social Justice Statements
As an expression of our faith and values, the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) takes positions on relevant issues of social justice. Our positions are discerned via the social witness process, as shepherded by the Commission on Social Witness. Grounded in these social witness statements, the UUA will sign on to letters and amicus briefs in coalition with other faith and social justice organizations, magnifying our impact in the larger world.

Social Witness Statements
Search our collection of Unitarian Universalist Social Witness Statements (updated annually). Both Unitarian and Universalist histories are inseparable from social and political action over the years. Since the Unitarians and the Universalists consolidated in 1961, the resulting Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations has continued a proud legacy of activism. Our statements bear witness to the world on issues of social justice.
Sign-on Letters and Amicus Briefs
From time to time, the Unitarian Universalist Association is asked to sign on to statements of position on certain issues, in the form of letters to public officials, open statements, shareholder statements, and amicus briefs. UUA sign-ons are determined by whether or not we have grounding based on positions we've taken in our social witness statements (see above). Read a list of statements to which the UUA has signed on.
