Building covenantal relationships among Unitarian Universalist women that equip us all to be better co-conspirators and allies in the movement for collective liberation.
WHO WE ARE NOWIt has always been the UUWF’s wish to join wholeheartedly with people everywhere in striving for universal human dignity, freedom, and peace. We are proud to have historically been the voice for women as an affiliate of the Unitarian Universalist Association.
As we celebrate our 60th year, the Unitarian Universalist Women’s Federation will build on the legacy of our past, the achievements of the present, and our ambitions for the future. Part of this journey has required self-examination and learning. We recognize that, at times in our history, the UUWF advanced harmful white feminist practices that excluded and oppressed women of color. We are committed to the inner work that’s required of us both as individuals and as an institution in order to more fully embody the justice we want to see in the world. With these truths in mind, we have crafted a vision for our future:
The UUWF builds covenantal relationships amongst UU women that equip us all to be better co-conspirators and allies in the movement for collective liberation.
This vision centers relationships and community-building as our primary work. We want to make it possible for more people to see themselves in the UUWF, to be more expansive in the strategies we undertake, and to build a more dynamic, inclusive, and relevant organization. We are excited to elevate our history while also centering and sharing the diverse stories and experiences of UU women and femmes, trans and cis, young and the not-as-young. We seek to support, illuminate, and connect the work and wisdom already active in congregations and communities across the country. We hope you’ll join us so that we can build a more just world, together.
