1975 General Resolution

WHEREAS, the rapidly increasing human population of the world has caused grave problems in the supply of food and raw materials and threatens the quality of life in developed and developing nations alike; and

WHEREAS, the United States as the fourth most populous nation on earth, the greatest consumer of its goods and raw materials, and the richest by almost any measure of wealth is in a position to set an example for change for others to follow;

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED: That the delegates at the 1975 General Assembly of the Unitarian Universalist Association urge the government of the United States;

  1. To establish and implement humane and equitable immigration, resources and population policies and programs which will soon stabilize population in the United States;
  2. To encourage the conservation and development of food and natural resources, and to discourage waste and to encourage the development of alternate energy supplies;
  3. To cooperate with other nations of the world directly and through the United Nations in greatly increased programs to bring about worldwide population stabilization and socio-economic development, all with the goal of attaining for all people on earth a reasonable quality of life, including adequate food, housing, medical care, and education.
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED: That we urge the members of the UUA and the US public through voluntary agencies to support the above policies; and

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED: That the Canadian Unitarian Council be requested to represent the same concerns to the government of Canada and to its own membership.
