Interfaith Action for Economic Justice
WHEREAS, the General Assembly of the Unitarian Universalist Association has repeatedly declared its dedication to social and economic justice as a basic tenet of our common faith; and
WHEREAS, our dedication to economic justice has deep roots not only in philosophy and historic stands of Universalist and Unitarian religious bodies, but also in the conviction of other faiths; and
WHEREAS, seventeen faith groups, which also share these deep roots, are banded together as Interfaith Action for Economic Justice which for nearly two years has been producing a flow of information;
BE IT RESOLVED: That the 1985 General Assembly of the Unitarian Universalist Association urges the President and the Board of Trustees of the Association to:
- Consider promptly the denomination's potential benefit from stronger participation in the work of Interfaith Action for Economic Justice in enriching our understanding of economic justice issues and increasing the effectiveness of our existing programs;
- Specifically appoint a high-ranking official representative to Interfaith Action; and
- Allocate financial support to Interfaith Action as an effective means of implementing our dedication to economic justice.
