UUAM (formerly known as UFETA, which remains the official name for business purposes) often runs ads in UU World, and we hope to run more ads, ads with varied messages that will challenge all Unitarian Universalists to rethink how animals are treated in our society (click here for samples.). Your donation will be used for this purpose only.

"We acknowledge and affirm the kinship and interdepend­ence of all beings, and adopt an ethic of inter­spe­cies com­passion as an integral com­po­nent of liberal religion."

Unitarian Universalist Animal Ministry
Who are we? UUAM is a group of concerned Unitarian Universalists and UU friends who desire to grow and express their faith as compassion towards all beings. We do this by asking these fundamental religious questions: What does it mean to be human in mixed species communities? What is our response to this understanding?

To answer these questions we draw on our UU principles and sources, traditions, and congregational life to deepen our awareness of the interdependence of life. We then support one another in not just learning how caring for all beings is a moral and religious issue, but also engaging in concrete actions that bring about change on the individual, family, congregational, community, and societal level.

We do this not just for nonhumans, but for ourselves and all of life. For as we live a life of awareness based on our interdependence (UU 7th Principle) and the inherent worth and dignity of all beings (UU 1st Principle) we live fully, deeply, and authentically. As we come to love our neighbors as ourselves, we liberate not just others, but ourselves as well. More...

Don't Miss!
Please visit the UU Animal Ministry booth at General Assembly in Portland, Oregon next week.

We will have a booth highlighting many of our projects - the Reverence for Life Program, the First Principle Project, our DOVE project, our involvement with Commit2Respond, Food Justice, the Environmental Justice Collaboratory, our new vision statement, buttons, resources, fun, companionship - oh the list goes on and on! Our booth number is #313.

We also have many workshops on Food Justice and on the First Principle Project - as well as involved with Climate Change.

Hope to see you there, or a representative from your UUAM chapter of your congregation.

You Should Know...
Now is the time to get your congregation to vote on a Study Action Item related to nonhuman animal well-being. UUAM will support you in these efforts. Congregations must vote and submit it to the UUA by October 1, 2015. It's only 500 words (one page). So get started now! For more information go here.

A few authors have put together a template that you use, or adapt, to your congregation. You can find this draft document here.
