Article II of the UUA Bylaws, Principles and Purposes contains our principles which UU congregations and communities covenant to themselves as members of the UUA. The last revision was in 1987, but several requests have arisen to make changes to the principles. The UUA Board committed to establishing a study commission to propose revisions. On January 20, 2023, the the Commission submitted an Article II Study Report to the UUA Board of Trustees. Learn more:
