1985 General Resolution

WHEREAS, the nuclear arms race has brought over 50,000 nuclear weapons into the world's arsenals, weapons which threaten all life; and

WHEREAS, these stockpiles continue to grow at an alarming rate; and

WHEREAS, the Unitarian Universalist Association and its member societies have historically been staunch advocates of military sanity and world peace; and

WHEREAS, the Great Peace March of 5,000 people marching from Los Angeles to New York to Washington, DC, from March through November, 1986, planned by PRO-Peace (People Reaching Out for Peace) offers a rare opportunity to inspire people around the world to commit to the goal of multilateral nuclear disarmament through massive citizen involvement;

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED: That the 1985 General Assembly of the Unitarian Universalist Association endorses the Great Peace March of PRO-Peace as a way to work toward our vision of a world at peace, free from the terror of unbridled weapons of unfathomable destructive power; and

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED: That this Assembly urges the districts and local societies of this Association to support the Great Peace March through volunteer involvement and financial contributions.
