1985 General Resolution

VOTED: That the Board of Trustees of the Unitarian Universalist Association states its endorsement of the US interfaith peacemaking campaign of resistance to military intervention in Central America which seeks to register publicly, in an orderly fashion, the opposition of large segments of the American public to such intervention. We join with other church bodies in support of those individuals who choose to support the legal protest pledge:

If the United States invades, bombs, sends combat troops, or otherwise significantly escalates its intervention in Central America, we pledge to join with others to engage in acts of legal protest as conscience leads us, including such action as participating in demonstrations, vigils, leaflettings, and appeals to Congress and the White House. We also pledge to demonstrate our support for those who engage in acts of nonviolent civil disobedience in order to prevent or halt further death and destruction in Central America.

Our endorsement of this pledge does not imply endorsement of any one particular strategy of witness, but encouragement of individual acts of conscience by persons of good will throughout the UU movement and the land.
