The Social Justice Team of the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Tuscaloosa, Alabama adopted the following resolution on March 8, 2014:
WHEREAS, Unitarian Universalists affirm and promote our Seven Principles, and
WHEREAS, The Fifth Principle is "The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large,"
NOW BE IT RESOLVED, that the Social Justice Team of the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Tuscaloosa, Alabama stands with the Move to Amend campaign and communities across the country to defend democracy from the corrupting effects of undue corporate power by amending the United States Constitution to establish that:
1. Only human beings, not corporation, are endowed with constitutional rights, and
2. Money is not speech, and therefore regulating political contributions and spending is not equivalent to limiting political speech.
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that the social Justice Team of the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Tuscaloosa, Alabama hereby joins with other organization throughout Alabama to instruct our state and federal representative to enact resolutions and legislation to advance this effort.
