Delegates narrowed down the six proposed Actions of Immediate Witness to three, and voted them onto Sunday’s agenda. The UUA’s bylaws only allow a General Assembly to adopt up to three AIWs, which the Commission on Social Witness introduced in this order:

  • AIW C: “Support the Proposed 28th ‘We the People’ Amendment to the Constitution: Corporations Are Not Persons and Money Is Not Speech,” which will be discussed in a mini-assembly at 1:45 today in Room 208
  • AIW F: “Condemn the Mass Incarceration, Killing, and Mistreatment of Young Men of Color by Police,” which will be discussed in a mini-assembly at 1:45 today in Room 209
  • AIW A: “Consider Divestment from the Fossil Fuel Industry,” which will be discussed in a mini-assembly at 1:45 today in Room 207

  1. Chris – Will the full text of the revised AIWs be posted online before Sunday’s vote. In particular, so that off site delegates may read the revised versions before voting?

  2. Yes. The Commission on Social Witness will compile final drafts of all three texts tonight, and we’ll post a link to the PDF version of the document the delegates will see tomorrow morning. (Hi Joan!)
