This year’s General Assembly will be in Portland, Oregon, June 24th thru June 28th! This year’s theme is centered on Building a New Way. Portland is a wonderful city and provides a very welcoming environment to all UUS. All registration activities will become available on March 1st.
These include; General Registration, Housing/Hotel availability, and Volunteer applications. An outline version of the program schedule, is currently available at uua.org/ga. Volunteer applications must be submitted by April 1st, for consideration. Volunteers are reimbursed for their General Registration fees, for 24 hours of effort (1/2 time positions are also available, but limited). This year the General Registration fee will be $350 for an adult full-time attendee. Addition financial assistance information can be found under Registration at the Website above.
Access from Portland International Airport (LDX), to downtown, is convenient and economical via their Light-rail system. Additionally, the City of Portland will be providing “free downtown use” of the Light-rail, during our stay. See Travel, for other options — already on the GA Website.
The Ware Lecturer will be Dr. Cornel West. He speaks often and passionately about the divides between the “white culture”, and those considered to be people of “color”, in that culture! His, “…is a legacy of telling the truth, and also about being a witness to love and justice!”
