Follow the 2015 General Assembly of the Unitarian Universalist Association with UU World. Starting Wednesday, June 24, and continuing through Sunday, June 28, our team of writers and photographers will publish reports throughout the day on GA business and major events. We’ll add a guide with links to each post here, but you can also monitor our General Assembly blog directly (at uuworld.org/ga) or subscribe to its feed (feeds.feedburner.com/uuworldGA).
The UUA will livestream the general sessions (formerly known as plenary sessions), worship services, and Saturday evening’s Ware Lecture by Cornel West. You can watch the livestream on UU World’s homepage, at the UUA's General Assembly page (where you’ll find a schedule of the livestreamed events), or on the UUA’s YouTube channel.
We’ll be tweeting news items, quotes, and photos, and collecting or retweeting your observations, photos, and videos. Join the Twitter conversation with the hashtag #uuaGA.
