GA 2014General Assembly is the annual meeting of our Unitarian Universalist Association. Attendees worship, witness, learn, connect, and make policy for the Association through democratic process. Anyone may attend; congregations must certify annually to send voting delegates. The 2014 General Assembly will be June 25-29 in Providence, RI.  Most General Assembly events will be held in the Rhode Island Convention Center.

Theme for 2014 GA: “Love Reaches Out”
We believe that our faith provides a path for each of us to unlock our transformational capacity to serve the world with love.  We will gather in 2014 to help our association live into a future where  Love Reaches Out – to share our faith both within and beyond our congregations’ walls.

Outstanding Programming
General Assembly will offer just shy of 200 programming choices over the 5 days of GA.  The 2014 Ware lecturer will be Sister Simone Campbell, a religious leader, attorney and poet with extensive experience in public policy and advocacy for systemic change. In 2012, she was instrumental in organizing the “Nuns on the Bus” tour.

Providence is a Fitting Place for UUs to Gather
Known as “The Creative Capital”, Providence is a vibrant Renaissance city.  UUs will essentially take over the compact downtown, where you’ll find history, natural beauty and vibrant culture wherever you turn.

Multigenerational and Inclusive

There is an active youth and young adult contingent at GA.  Scholarship and Volunteer Opportunities, Childcare, and Accessibility Services are available.
