Article II Study Commission

Article II of the Unitarian Universalist Association’s Bylaws, which includes the Principles and Sources of our faith, is required to be reviewed periodically. A Study Commission charged with revising, replacing, or restructuring Article II as needed will most likely recommend substantial changes at the next Unitarian Universalist Association General Assembly in June of 2023. The Commission shared some draft language and led discussions during General Assembly 2022 to help people think about the possibilities.
