Our Words Matter

Our 5th UU principle tells us that every person deserves a vote in issues that concern them. This principle is an important aspect of our faith as it serves as a pillar for our democratic process. Understanding this principle is a key element in understanding our social justice roots. How are our voices heard in our Unitarian Universalist context and why is this so important to us? Through creative engagement we will focus on this principle and how it allows us to create our Beloved Community.
