UUA President the Rev. Peter Morales issued a statement on Occupy Wall Street and accompanying protests around the country. The statement says, in part: “Unitarian Universalism embodies a long tradition of working for economic justice and workers’ rights. Today is another opportunity for us to live our faith, and the Occupy protests are a first step on the road to repairing our country. “I reach out to Unitarian Universalists everywhere to consider how you might be of service to any among us who are struggling to provide for their families, those who have been cheated and abused by financial institutions, and all those whose backs ache under a burden of debt, unemployment, and fading hope. Let the world see the power of our faith in action.” http://www.uua.org/news/pressroom/pressreleases/188405.shtml.
