The following quote can be found on the Unitarian Universalist Association web site:
“Unitarian Universalist Association has filed a shareholder resolution asking Walmart to add Gender Identity or Expression to its non-discrimination policy. Last week we were notified by Walmart’s Office of Diversity that they were adopting this policy and were disseminating it throughout their network of stores and distribution centers. This is a big step towards justice for Walmart employees and perhaps even more importantly, an example to other companies. Walmart is currently the largest company in the Fortune 500 and the largest employer in the nation and, for that matter, the world. So how Walmart operates can profoundly affect corporate policies and practices worldwide, for better or for worse.”
This is just one way the dues our Fellowship sends to the Unitarian Universalist Association pays off! Let us be grateful for the work each of us does to make the world a better place and the work we do together.
