#349 | Kenneth Button | Restore 6th Principle

Submission 349
Kenneth Button
River Road Unitarian Universalist Congregation (Bethesda, MD) 4034

What is your suggestion or idea?

The proposed draft inexplicably deletes entirely the 6th Principle from the proposal: ““The goal of world community with peace, liberty and justice for all.””
This is a core principle and value for the many UU’s such as myself who are veterans and who have spent careers in international affairs, such as the Peace Corp., humanitarian work, economic development, and international trade. It should be included as a stand-alone item within any revision of Article II.

What is the reason for your amendment idea?

See above.

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

Other members of RRUUC and on UUA zoom sessions.
