The 8th Principle - Adopted by CUUC Feb. 14, 2021

CUUC launched its 8th Principle initiative on July 16, 2020. The 8th Principle was adopted by CUUC, without modification, on Feb. 14, 2021. The objective was for the congregation to explore the journey toward adoption of The 8th Principle. The means of adoption was via a Resolution presented for a congregational vote, requiring an 80% “yes” vote per congregational policy. Out of 200 members 81 participated in the vote (remotely) on Feb. 14, 2021. 50 participants are required for a quorum. 77 individuals (96.2%) voted “yes” in support of the motion, 3 opposed, and 1 abstained. The organization and execution of this initiative was led by a five-member 8th Principle Team and supported by our professional staff and lay volunteers.

“We, the members of the Community Unitarian Universalist Congregation at White Plains, covenant to affirm and promote journeying toward spiritual wholeness by working to build a diverse multicultural Beloved Community by our actions that accountably dismantle racism and other forms of oppressions in ourselves and our institutions.”
