What kind of issue is appropriate for an Action of Immediate Witness (AIW)?

  • An issue that requires immediate action for our witness to make an impact
  • An issue that is specific and that is too narrow to merit three years of study and action that define the Congregational Study/Action Issue process
  • An issue that does not duplicate a recent AIW
  • An issue that is grounded in our Unitarian Universalist theology and practice
  • An issue that fits with our member congregations’ capacity to take meaningful action
  • An issue that presents opportunity for our member congregations to become respected participants in public dialogue
  • An issue that is crafted in civil language

For additional help as you proceed, please contact the Commission on Social Witness at socialwitness @ Through our social witness process, we work together so that the moral arc of the universe bends ever more closely toward justice.
