Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA)


The Unitarian Universalist Association has a membership of about 1,000 congregations serving adults and children in the United States and Canada. This Association represents the consolidation in 1961 of two older religious denominations: the Universalists, organized in 1793, and the Unitarians, organized in 1825.


Beyond the local congregations, the UUA provides area leadership and consultation, produces pamphlets, devotional material, and the magazine The Unitarian Universalist World, supports Beacon Press, creates a religious education curriculum, spurs social action efforts, and implements programs in overseas and interfaith areas. The Church of the Larger Fellowship, which provides a ministry to geographically isolated religious liberals, is also supported by the UUA.
