UCN Members:  We Need Your Vote by January 30

The UUA is in the process of gathering important information from all member congregations in order to prepare for General Assembly in 2019.  As part of the Annual Congregational Inventory we are asked to consider whether to approve a draft statement of conscience on Democracy Uncorrupted.

In order for the proposed Statement of Conscience (SOC) on Democracy Uncorrupted to be placed on the Final Agenda at General Assembly (GA) 2019, at least twenty-five percent (25%) of all certified congregations must participate in the ballot vote. If that quota is met, delegates at GA will have an opportunity to amend the SOC, and will hear debate and choose to approve the Statement or refer it back to the Commission on Social Witness (CSW) for further study.

UCN’s Social Justice Committee will host a Barn Banter on January 13 at 11:15 a.m. for all to discuss the statement, which was emailed to all members.  Leigh Hoftiezer, SJC Chairperson, will gather UCN members’ votes and report our poll to the UUA. Get in touch with her by January 30 if you want your vote to be counted.
