The inherent worth and dignity of every person…
New Orleans and its people need and deserve the same recognition and support that Unitarian Universalists offer all others.

Justice, equity and compassion in human relations…
Our systems are broken and need to be fi xed. It will take the education and empowerment of the people of the community to reach these goals.

Acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations…
Support of our congregations will allow us to be active in this community to deliver and shape our good news for the people of this area.

Free and responsible search for truth and meaning…
We sing of giving hope when hope is hard to find. We will be a beacon shining out the light of hope onto a devastated people.

The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large…
One of our goals is social justice renewal and if you have heard the stories of those left behind in the rising flood waters, then you will know that social action and renewal is desperately  needed.

The goal of world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all…
Parts of New Orleans are a war zone; people are imprisoned by the legal system, economics, and mental health issues.

Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part…
Katrina exposed and increased an environmental nightmare. We religious liberals must call for change here and in the halls of our government.
