Sign-On Letters

A "sign-on" is an endorsement either from an organization such as the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) or from one of its representatives such as the UUA President. Sign-ons are usually in the form of a letter directed to someone in a position of power requesting that they take action on the issue in question.

The UUA determines which letters to sign on to by whether or not we have “grounding” within our past social justice statements. This is to ensure that our sign-ons faithfully represent the position of Unitarian Universalists, as determined by our democratic social witness process. The UUA president has the prerogative to make personal endorsements provided they are in keeping with the values of Unitarian Universalism.

Another category of organizational endorsements is amicus curiae briefs, which are legal documents filed to state positions relevant to court cases. For amicus briefs, in addition to "grounding," the statement is vetted by attorney.
