Declaration of Conscience of the Unitarian Universalist Association

Since January, nearly 15,000 Unitarian Universalists have signed the Declaration of Conscience. This declaration went beyond stating our values about a fairer and more peaceful world and committed signers to take ACTION. Now, the partnership between the UU the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee (UUSC) is announcing the next phase in our work together: “Love Resists.” With a rich collection of online resources, we offer the tools you need to turn your declaration into action and help us join in deep solidarity, expand the concept of sanctuary, and raise our voices in our communities and beyond.

Sign the Declaration of Conscience and share with your friends.

At this extraordinary time in our nation’s history, we are called to affirm our profound commitment to the fundamental principles of justice, equity and compassion, to truth and core values of American society.

In the face of looming threats to immigrants, Muslims, people of color, and the LGBTQ community and the rise of hate speech, harassment and hate crimes, we affirm our belief in the inherent worth and dignity of every person.

In opposition to any steps to undermine the right of every citizen to vote or to turn back advances in access to health care and reproductive rights, we affirm our commitment to justice and compassion in human relations.

And against actions to weaken or eliminate initiatives to address the threat of climate change – actions that would threaten not only our country but the entire planet – we affirm our unyielding commitment to protect the interdependent web of all existence.

We will oppose any and all unjust government actions to deport, register, discriminate, or despoil.

As people of conscience, we declare our commitment to translate our values into action as we stand on the side of love with the most vulnerable among us.
