1967 Business Resolution

THE SIXTH GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF THE UNITARIAN UNIVERSALIST ASSOCIATION:

REQUESTS the Board of Trustees of the Association, with the aid of the Department of Social Responsibility, to exercise the power represented by the Association's ownership of common stock as an effective instrument for promoting social justice by combating discriminatory business practices;

REQUESTS the Board of Trustees of the Association and member societies to consider devoting, consistent with other program needs, a portion of their unrestricted funds, in relatively small amounts where this is legally necessary, to enterprises having clearly stated policies and practices of non-discrimination, including those which provide genuinely integrated housing in previously segregated areas, provided local legal requirements are complied with;

REQUESTS the member societies to ask their individual members to do likewise; and

REQUESTS the Association to compile and keep active a list of enterprises genuinely working towards integrated housing in previously segregated areas and to make such list available upon request to member societies.
