GA Update for Friday, March 5, 2021

Unitarian Universalist Association Virtual General Assembly in June 2021
CHOIR REGISTRATION OPENS MARCH 15
GA 2020 Virtual Choir
For many, singing in the choir is a key part of coming together as UUs at General Assembly. This year, instead of joining our voices in person, let’s join our voices in a virtual choir! Each singer will record a video of themselves singing, and those individual videos will be edited into one glorious combined video to be premiered during GA. Advance registration is required and space is limited.

We are excited to announce that the new General Assembly mobile app is ready for download. GA registrants can download the app, powered by Whova, for Android or Apple, or use the browser-based web version. This is the same app that was so successfully used as a platform for the recent New Day Rising National Conference. We are still working to assemble programming into the GA schedule, but the connection and community features are ready to use.
WITNESS, CONNECT, ACT!
A Social Witness Convening
Wednesday, March 24, 7-9 pm ET/4-6 pm PT
While many of us celebrate the promise of a new administration in the White House, things we care about — advocating for racial justice, countering white supremacy, protecting our democratic freedoms — are still at risk. By the thousands, Unitarian Universalists made their voices heard through the UU the Vote campaign. UU the Vote showed us all how vital and powerful we are when we act together. Inspired to grow more connections for collective social witness action for a wide range of values at risk, the Commission on Social Witness invites all UUs to Witness, Connect, Act!, a social witness convening to share and connect UUs doing similar work for inspiration and ideas.
