Established in 1992 with the concurrence and support of the Association’s Board of Trustees, the President’s Council is charged with providing the UUA President with suggestions and feedback on stewardship of the Association and the Movement, and on related matters; providing counsel and leadership for Association resource development efforts; and helping to increase knowledge and support of the UUA and its programs through advocacy with individuals and congregations. Members of the Council meet annually in the fall.
A message from UUA President, Susan Frederick-Gray:
Dear President’s Council Members,
I am so grateful to you! You support our congregations, leaders and the larger Association. You through your leadership create and sustain ministries and communities of love and courage. Thank you all for your love, your commitment and leadership, and the generous support you give to this faith.
I hope this web page serves as a place for communication and connection. Here you will find our latest updates, President’s Council membership list, event information, memorials for former President’s Council members, and much more.
This is no time for a casual faith. And we Unitarian Universalists must remember that we are not in this alone.

Decision tree: should I call the police?
The Office of Outreach and Public Witness has recently published "Stop Calling the Police and Start Eradicating Anti- Blackness" which encourages us to examine our "assumptions about whose safety is protected".
"If one group is required to suffer in order for any of us to experience freedom, that means none of us are truly free. We don’t have to settle for exchanging one group’s freedom for our own.
