Join UU Humanists at UUA General Assembly

UU Humanist Members and Friends:
 
General Assembly 2018 in Kansas City, Missouri (Wednesday, June 20-Sunday, June 24) is going to be big.  Our GA panel—cosponsored with the UU History and Heritage Society—is titled “Black Humanism in Unitarian Universalist Context and Beyond.” That takes place on Thursday, 1:30-2:30:00 pm in the Kansas City Convention Center, room 2502 B.
 
Black Humanism developed within a Unitarian context but spread far beyond. The panel will consider UU ministers Lewis McGee, a 1940s Unitarian minister in South Chicago, and 20th century minister William R. Jones, and how their work continues today. We conclude with a powerful voice of Black Humanism from outside the UU context. Speakers include Rev. Patrice Curtis, Rev. Karen Hutt, Rev. Dr. Nicole Kirk, and Mandisa Thomas.

Year-End President's Letter

Dear UU Humanist Association members and friends:
 
As 2017 ends, we progressives are weary. The assaults on our values have been constant. The Trump Administration’s recent banning of words at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is telling. The words are: vulnerable, entitlement, diversity, transgender, fetus, evidence-based, science-based.
