General Assembly is the annual gathering of Unitarian Universalists, where we conduct business of the Association, explore the theological underpinnings of our faith, and lean fully into our mission and principles. In 2022, we will have the option of meeting online or in-person in Portland, Oregon on June 22 – 26, 2022. This year’s theme is Meet the Moment: Reimagining Radical Faith Community.

Although anyone can attend (and all are very much encouraged to do so), the UUFH can have up to 5 delegates. Delegates have the ability, as well as the obligation, to vote on all business and policy matters on behalf of the UUFH. If you would like to be a delegate, the UUFH will pay your registration fee of $275. The deadline to decide if you’d like to be a delegate is this Sunday, May 29th. Please contact Terry Donaldson at tdonalds2014@gmail.com if you’d like to be a delegate or would like more information about it.

One of the main attractions of GA is the Ware Lecture – the “Keynote Speech”. This year’s speaker is Ibram X. Kendi,  author of five straight #1 New York Times bestsellers, including How to Be an Antiracist and the National Book Award-winning Stamped From The Beginning: A Definitive History of Racist Ideas in America. In 2020, Time magazine named him one of the 100 most influential people in the world. His relentless and passionate research puts into question the notion of a post-racial society and opens readers’ and audiences’ eyes to the reality of racism in America today. Kendi’s events are sharp, informative, and hopeful, serving as a strong platform for any institution’s discussions on racial discrimination.
