This groundbreaking project, launched in July 2013, is designed to solicit input from Unitarian Universalists (UUs) historically marginalized by ability, sexual orientation, gender identity/expression, race, and/or ethnicity about their unique experiences and ministry needs within Unitarian Universalism.
The project has four major components:
- a comprehensive survey of UUs with historically marginalized abilities, sexual orientations, gender identities, races, and/or ethnicities.The survey was closed November 30, 2013. We received a robust response and want to thank all who participated.
- a series of focus groups comprised of willing individuals randomly selected from survey participants, and other key UU leaders.
- the data analysis phase.
- engagement with the survey results through social media and other forums.
The focus of this project is to help congregational leaders and Unitarian Universalist Association staff understand where we are now and what we need to be well-equipped to meet the ministry needs of people seeking a liberal religious home in the 21st century.
