July 29, 10 am: Putting Values into Action

At this year’s UUA General Assembly, delegates voted to select a Congregational Study/Action Issue (CSAI) for four years of study, reflection and action from 2018-2022. This process allows all UUA member congregations to mobilize energy, ideas and resources around a common issue.
