Handout 2: UUA General Assembly Resolution on Confronting Gender Identity Discrimination

Part of What We Choose

Confronting Gender Identity Discrimination

2007 Responsive Resolution

Whereas the President of the Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations noted, in his June 21st report to the General Assembly, the work of our West Florida congregations on the issue of employment discrimination against transgender individuals, and

Whereas there has been no prior statement by the General Assembly specifically addressing our Association's views on transgender identity,

Be it resolved that the 2007 General Assembly affirms its commitment to the inherent worth and dignity of every human being, including transgender individuals.

We further resolve to express this spiritual value through our employment practices, educational efforts, congregational life, and public witness, and

Encourage member congregations and societies to explore with their communities the important differences between sexual orientation and transgender identity.
