Social Witness Learning

We live in a time of rapid change and uncertainty surrounding so many pillars of beloved community in the nation and world. Recognizing this and the unique histories, capabilities, and contexts of our congregations and communities, we affirm that there are many different pressing priorities for social witness within our denomination.

The UUA Commission on Social Witness seeks to empower our vital collective social witness activities. Toward this goal, we are seeking your responses to this survey to inform our wider understanding, appreciation, and capacity to support social witness across the Unitarian Universalist Association.

We are grateful for your time in completing this survey, which we anticipate to require 20 minutes of your time. Your responses will guide our work in new and needed directions. We will share anonymous and aggregated information from this survey in our reports to the general assembly and quotes, on the UUA website and other platforms including publication. Completing this survey implies you are okay with this plan. 

As you complete this survey and contemplate social witness, we offer our working definition of social witness for you to reflect on as a starting place: Social witness is the act of courageously affirming what is just and good through speech and action that demonstrates solidarity with those who are marginalized and that imagines and articulates social justice for collective liberation.
