WHEREAS, the Association seeks to be guided by this principle in all its proceedings and programs; and

WHEREAS, the new educational programs of the Department of Education and Social Concern dealing with the biological and cultural evolution of humankind and humankind's relationship to all living beings should emphasize the oneness and equality of all humans (i.e., the human heritage curriculum series, the culture builder curriculum series, the human sexuality curriculum);

BE IT THEREFORE RESOLVED: That the UUA continue its efforts to investigate and teach the nature of humanity, including the common traits, drives, etc., the relationship to other living beings, the evolutionary changes which have occurred throughout known history, the basis of the apparent "differences" and the place of human beings within the total natural order; and

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED: That the UUA implement this effort through the Department of Education and Social Concern and through other appropriate agencies of the Association in consultation with other concerned groups and individuals toward the end of promoting greater understanding, appreciation, adaptation, and programming among human beings.
