Our Seven-and-Eight Principles

The Principles of Unitarian Universalism can be conveyed through different words, and different visual forms.

The Black Lives of UU (BLUU) Organizing Collective has encouraged all Unitarian Universalists to advocate for the formal adoption of an 8th Principle, articulating a commitment to the dismantling of white supremacy, within the stated principles of our faith:

“We, the member congregations of the Unitarian Universalist Association, covenant to affirm and promote: journeying toward spiritual wholeness by working to build a diverse multicultural Beloved Community by our actions that accountably dismantle racism and other oppressions in ourselves and our institutions.”
