GA Resolution Supports Native American Treaty Rights

Economic Injustice, Poverty, and Racism: We Can Make a Difference!
2000 Statement of Conscience

We, the member congregations of the UUA, hereby rededicate ourselves to the pursuit of economic justice, an end to racism, and an end to poverty. We recognize that racism is a major contributor toward economic injustice. We pledge ourselves to strive to understand how racism and classism perpetuate poverty and to work for the systemic changes needed to promote a more just economy and compassionate society. Our work for economic justice must include support for . . . respect for treaty rights of First Nations and Native American Tribes [among other items].
