“The 2020 election will have direct consequences for democracy, for climate justice, for our future, for our children, for healthcare, for the lives of people who live with disabilities. It’s a matter of life and death.”
Unitarian Universalist Association President the Rev. Susan Frederick-Gray,
UU the Vote speech at General Assembly in 2019
UU the Vote was imagined as an “all hands on deck” project to articulate UU values in the public square and activate and organize Unitarian Universalists on a mass scale.
It was motivated by two primary objectives:
- Responding to the moral call to combat the rise of white supremacy and fascism and imagine a just society where all have inherent worth and dignity, where our communities are governed democratically, and where we live sustainably.
- The opportunity to move Unitarian Universalists to embody our values by centering the marginalized and building organizing infrastructure across the UU ecosystem.
