Save the 7 Principles Mailing List
The Save the 7 Principles team has established a mailing list so UUs can be informed and express interest in other actions they may wish to take to defeat the proposed language.
If you wish to become involved in this crucial vote next year, please sign up for the Save the 7 Principles mailing list.
The Save the 7 Principles mailing list will send you occasional emails so you can be informed and, hopefully, actively engage in saving the soul of Unitarian Universalism. The Fifth Principle Project encourages its members to add their names to the Save the 7 Principles mailing list.
