The UU Humanists' Blog is a curated blog -- this means we highly encourage members and those with an interest in Humanism within the Unitarian Universalist tradition to submit articles for publication. The blog is curated so we may negotiate edits for clarity or length and we reserve the right to not publish every submitted article.

This means that the blog's content reflects the diversity of the opinions of the authors and is not just the "official party line" of the Association. As Humanists, we welcome diversity of opinion and encourage civil discourse through comments on these posts and on our social media pages. 

The UUHA Needs Volunteers!

Behind the scenes, the Board of Directors of the Unitarian Universalist Humanist Association (UUHA) has been brainstorming new and exciting ideas for the organization as we look to 2021 and beyond. The UUHA is ready to find fresh ways to fulfill our mission to serve our members and the principles of Humanism and Unitarian Universalism across the country and beyond. 

To that end, the UUHA leadership would love your help in our efforts.

We are looking for volunteers to help us form our primary organization committees, which in turn will lay the groundwork to revitalize our programming, outreach, and services we provide for our membership. We are seeking volunteers across various sectors of our work, from internal operations to member-facing programs. And so, depending on your interests and passions, you might be the volunteer we're looking for!

Some more information on our committees and the work is listed further down. But click the link below too apply to be a volunteer! Read more about The UUHA Needs Volunteers! »
