Where do I begin in proposing an Action of Immediate Witness (AIW)?

If you are thinking of proposing an AIW, consider posting your idea. Go to Planning for AIWs at General Assembly (GA) to get a head start and gain partners or allies.

From about April 15th to June 1st before GA, the Commission on Social Witness will receive at socialwitness@uua.org: 1) a topic title, 2) a two-sentence description, and 3) a contact email address. (Please start your email subject line with “AIW”).

This information will be posted on the above cited web page. People interested in learning more about a particular topic or cooperating on drafting an AIW can communicate directly with the original proposer.

If you prefer to just propose a topic for others to consider, send only the title and description to be posted. If another person wants to coordinate planning that issue, they can notify us at socialwitness@uua.org.

Proposed AIWs CANNOT be submitted online before GA.

You must visit the Commission on Social Witness booth in the Exhibit Hall or contact the CSW at socialwitness@uua.org, where you can get the necessary forms, updates, and assistance with fine tuning your proposed AIW.

What should my proposed AIW look like?
