Welcome to the circle of liberal religious people working to advance justice for women and girls and promote their spiritual growth.
Letter Opposing the Domestic Gag Rule
The UUWF and the UUA, among 110 faith and secular organizations, signed a letter May 16 to Secretary Alex Azar, Secretary of the Health and Human Services Department ,expressing grave objections to likely restrictive new regulations guiding the Title X national family planning program by instituting a new, anti-choice domestic “gag rule.”
The proposed regs were issued May 22, and taken individually or as a whole would indeed “compromise the program’s continued success and interfere with Title X-supported providers’ commitment to offering high quality care.”
We are part of a Religious Advocates Working Group (RAWG), and are in the process together of coming up with the most impactful ways to weigh in on this development. The next few days and weeks we will be using social media and other means of witness urging DHHS to reject implementing any proposals that would restrict access to high quality affordable family planning services.

The New Prophetic Sisterhood initiative (NPS)
The New Prophetic Sisterhood is a network of UU woman-identified religious professionals who covenant to affirm and promote equity and justice for women and girls and to lift up diverse feminisms. As individuals and as a body we use our voices in our congregations and communities to create more awareness of and prophetic public witness around issues that impact women and girls.
If you are a Unitarian Universalist woman-identified religious professional and are interested in being part of the NPS, please join us.
