Proposal for Phoenix as Future General Assembly Site 1987 General Resolution

VWHEREAS, it is the policy of the Unitarian Universalist Association to encourage the Legislature of the State of Arizona to declare the third Monday in January as a legal holiday in recognition of the birthday of Martin Luther King, Jr.; and

WHEREAS, the Board of Trustees of the Unitarian Universalist Association, on short notice, withdrew the 1988 General Assembly from Phoenix; and

WHEREAS, this decision has painfully disappointed the hope of many Arizonans who had already worked enthusiastically in anticipation of welcoming Unitarian Universalists to their capital city in 1988;

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED: That the 1987 General Assembly urges the Board of Trustees to schedule a General Assembly in Phoenix at the earliest feasible date after the State of Arizona declares as a legal holiday the third Monday in January in recognition of Martin Luther King, Jr.
