The Welcoming Congregation Program is a volunteer program for Unitarian Universalist congregations that want to take intentional steps to become more welcoming and inclusive of people with marginalized sexual orientations and gender identities — and UUCA is extremely proud to be one of those congregations!get involved

First launched in 1990, the program grew out of an understanding that widespread prejudices and ignorance about lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersexed and questioning (LGBTQIQ) people existed within Unitarian Universalism, which resulted in the exclusion of LGBTQIQ people from our congregations. Today, 2/3 of U.S. Unitarian Universalist congregations and 3/4 of Canadian Unitarian Universalist congregations are recognized as Welcoming Congregations.

MenA highlight of every year, UUCA also marches in the annual Atlanta Pride Festival Parade, spreading the UU message of love and equality for all.
