Introducing Leader Lab
Relentlessly Useful Resources for Leadership Development
What would Unitarian Universalism look like if we trained our lay leaders as highly as we train other religious professionals such as ministers and religious educators? We would no longer be able to joke that we’re too disorganized to be called “organized religion.”Your UUA Congregational Life staff has been working on a variety of online resources for lay (and professional!) leaders, and it’s now ready for its Beta release.Start here to find a searchable database of leadership resources, board member training, leadership development planning for your congregation, online leadership courses, a live webinar listing, and more!

Join UUs & Partners to Stop the KXL Pipeline – Sign up for the Promise to Protect Training Tour
The Promise to Protect Training Tour will train 2,000 people this spring for direct action to stop the KXL tar sands pipeline. See the video here. While the 9th Circuit Court blocked the permit TransCanada has received from the state of Nebraska for construction to start in June, the Trump administration has now granted a permit. The tour kicked off on March 23rd and is taking place in 10 cities and 4 reservations. Native and non-Native environmental justice activists will come together to take powerful collective action to stop the extraction and harm being caused to communities by the fossil fuel industry. The training will prepare people for resistance along the pipeline route and in our local areas. Our faith calls us to heal our relationship with the earth through action in solidarity with those resisting the fossil fuel industry’s extraction and exploitation of people, resources, and lands. Sign up for a training near you here.
