General Assembly GA 2017

"Resist and Rejoice"

Unitarian Universalists from around the country will gather in New Orleans, Louisiana for a General Assembly experience focused on solidarity with the movements for racial, economic, and climate justice. We will invite the culture, history, geography, and people of New Orleans to be our teachers.


uua general assembly 2017Steeped in a history of influences from Europe, the Caribbean, and Africa, New Orleans is one of America's most culturally and historically rich destinations. It is a city known for its music, food, architecture, and festivals. The average high temperature in June is 89 degrees and the average low is 71. New Orleans is also known as a place of re-birth following the devastation of Katrina in 2005. Many Unitarian Universalists have contributed time and funds in the effort to rebuild both the city and the congregations in the area.  By going to New Orleans, we can both celebrate our successes and recommit to the relationships that have been forged with this community.
