Social Witness Process

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

To assist Unitarian Universalists in organizing Actions of Immediate Witness (AIWs) at an upcoming General Assembly (GA), the Commission on Social Witness (CSW) encourages you to plan and collaborate online.

To post your idea between April 15 and June 1, email your:

  1. topic title,
  2. two-sentence description, and
  3. contact information, including email address

to socialwitness [at] uua [dot] org (please start your subject line with "AIW").

The potential AIWs will be posted online, and people interested in learning more about a particular topic or collaborating 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 [at] uua [dot] org (socialwitness @

AIWs CANNOT be submitted online.  To be formally considered, proposed AIWs must be submitted at General Assembly as described in Part 2 of the Proposer's Guide

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