#172 | Deborah Lehman | Democracy Should be Emphasized

Submission 172
Deborah Lehman
UU Church of Meadville (Meadville, PA) 7313

What is your suggestion or idea?

Section C-2.2 Justice We covenant to use an inclusive democratic process to make decisions within our congregation, this association and our interactions in the world.
We will work to dismantle racism and all forms of systemic oppression that disenfranchises any of our fellows.

What is the reason for your amendment idea?

Placing the covenant to support the inclusive democratic process establishes the core belief that drives the support for dismantling oppressive systems.

Have you discussed this idea with your congregation or other UUs?

Yes. Our congregation had several meetings to discuss the Article 2 amendment and most agreed that democracy should be emphasized.
