President's Corner

The HUUmanists Association experienced a very productive and rewarding Justice GA last June, featuring a keynote address by Bill Murry on “Economic Justice: A Moral Imperative for UU Humanists” and a hugely successful “Book SmUUggling” project in the exhibition hall. See Roger Brewin’s GA Booth summary later in this Newsletter.

UUA General Assembly 2012

The 2012 Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) “Justice” General Assembly (GA) in Phoenix was a very special one for UU Humanists. Our keynote presentation, our booth presence, and our annual meeting/reception were all clearly focused on the GA theme of Economic Justice.

Bill Murry provided a keynote address entitled “Economic Justice: A Moral Imperative for UU Humanists.” 

Our booth in the exhibition area was organized around the theme of economic justice and was shared with the American Humanist Association, The Institute for Humanist Studies and several local social justice groups including the Secular Coalition for Arizona. A special issue of our journal, Religious Humanism, dedicated to the GA theme was available at the booth, along with other publications and membership opportunities.

Recent HUUmanists Activities

We HUUmanists have accomplished a lot this year in our quest to be a stronger voice for reason and compassion in Unitarian Universalism and in our society at large. Let me bring you up to date:

HUUmanists Association was enthusiastically accepted as a full member organization of the Secular Coalition for America at the SCA Annual Board meeting last January. By joining the other ten freethinking organizations we gain the opportunity to leverage our activities in defense of First Amendment principles. In turn, our partner organizations in SCA will benefit from the synergy of joining forces with thousands of Unitarian Universalists for whom the separation of church and state is a moral imperative. As specific issues emerge, I’ll be calling on you to add your voice to our efforts. Read more about Recent HUUmanists Activities »
