In June 2006, UUA's General Assembly voted to study and act on the issue of Peacemaking for four years, as part of the the Congregational Study Action Issue process. The description of the issue that was voted on is at http://www.uua.org/csai. In 2009 the results of the study will lead to a proposal for a Statement of Conscience on the issue.
A wealth of resources on the issue are available at http://www.uua.org/csai
Peacemaking-network is the UUA email forum for this SAI.
In the Spring of 2007, the Washington Office For Advocacy hired Alex Winnett to be the Program Associate for Peacemaking. His two year long position will be to help congregations, individuals and affiliates navigate the CSAI on Peacemaking.
