Together We Can
Shape the future of our faith in ways that are loving and just, bold and life-giving.
Build better relationships, deeper connections, and partnerships between the UUA and Unitarian Universalist communities.
Live into our shared covenant that invites us to make the bonds of love visible between us and the wider world through acts of courage, compassion, and wholeness.
Many congregations hold annual meetings as summer nears, and our UUA General Assembly falls next month. Two questions all of us need to pay attention to for the sake of the health of our democratic process is “Who are the people engaged in the political process of shaping the direction of our faith?” and “Who…
What is the common theological and moral grounding of our faith? Historically, Unitarians believed in one God, and Universalists believed all of us would eventually make it to heaven. Today, our beliefs vary widely, and yet we do share common ground: We believe that we all come from the same source, and we are ultimately…
Celebrating milestones is important. They offer us a chance to honor the past, to express gratitude, and to ask what the future can hold. They invite us to reflect on which traditions continue to serve our communities and which changes will allow us to remain relevant and vibrant.
The We Belong Together campaign invited me to join them this week as a chaplain for the Border Pilgrimage for Migrant Dignity in El Paso/Juárez. This is my second pilgrimage with this vital organization.
Tomorrow, I will board a plane to El Paso, where I will once again serve as a chaplain for my sisters from @WeBelongTogether—strong immigrant leaders from around the country who are walking towards just and compassionate immigration reform.
I am honored to be nominated by the Presidential Search Committee as a candidate for president of the UUA. Please, explore the pages of the campaign website, and come back for updates throughout the campaign.
Alison delivers a powerful, personal message of healing and hope at the Sunday morning worship service at the 2015 General Assembly in Portland, Ore.
Alison is an amazing leader and teacher. While I have over 30 years of institutional leadership experience in my job, I continually uncover new ways to lead, engage and manage through the collaboration that I have with Alison.

En mi trabajo de una década como activista, nunca he visto un ministro caminar con la gente, orar con la gente, u alentar la gente de la manera que lo hace la Reverenda Alison. Su dedicación y su afabilidad abren nuestra fe a pueblos oprimidos que de otra manera quizás nunca entrarían a uno de nuestros santuarios.

In my decade-long work as an organizer, I have never seen a minister walk with the people, pray with the people, and uplift the people the way Reverend Alison does. Her dedication and affability opens our faith to oppressed peoples that might otherwise never step foot into one of our sanctuaries.
Rev. John Buehrens
“As one who knows the job of UUA President, I enthusiastically endorse Alison Miller. She has all the gifts needed: passionate commitment to social justice, deep spirituality, experience in fundraising and young adult work, and an appreciation of congregational life from fellowships to large urban churches. Best of all, she is a strategic thinker who will get us back on the path to growth.”
“Alison is a tireless advocate for our saving message both inside our faith and outside our denomination. Having grown up Unitarian Universalist, she is committed to vibrant and nurturing religious education for all ages and seeks to retain those Unitarian Universalists already in our midst, our children and youth.”
Rev. Jan Taddeo
“We share a commitment to see our congregations and community ministries, those with and without walls, being places of radical welcome for people of all identities, and building the anti-racist, anti-oppressive world we dream about for our faith and beyond.”
Rev. Marisol Caballero
“Poetic, kind, compassionate, fierce, and determined, Alison Miller has championed the concerns of the historically marginalized within our congregations: youth, young adults, and people of color, and she puts her action where her words are.”
“Unitarian Universalism when practiced at its best exemplifies what it means to be in beloved community through engaging in shared ministry. Rev. Alison Miller is a leader who lives shared ministry in her congregation and in the world.”
Rev. Meg Riley
“Alison has lifted up my eyes from the rubble to the vision in key moments when I was discouraged about getting where we wanted to go. She has been a minister and spiritual leader for the CLF, setting a leadership tone of collaboration and engagement which generates joyful energy vital to sustaining innovation.”
Rev. Clark Olsen
“Alison is simply a dynamic, brilliant leader, with deep roots in Unitarian Universalism which promise great energy and vision. With her leadership I expect we will experience enthusiastic participation from across our denomination among both loyal and long-time members as well as new people from our emerging American population.”
