At their annual meeting each fall, the UULMF Steering Committee reviews core Issues and programs from the prior year and examines current and anticipated issues of state and federal importance for Florida UUs.
After developing a short list of the most important new issues, with input from UUs statewide via their congregational connections with UULMF, the Steering Committee considers core Issues and programs from the year before. From these, the Steering Committee selects the UULMF Core Issues and Programs for the current year.
The Core Issues for 2011-2012 selected by the Steering Committee are Renewing American Democracy, Immigration as a Moral Issue, and Climate Change. These issues are based on needs at the state and national level, issues that affect Floridians and may also have been selected for work and study by the UUA and by our partner UU Legislative Ministries nationwide. Together we can empower the voice of our Unitarian Universalist values in the public arena. The work we do is faith based, grounded in our Seven Principles. UULMF works "upstream" at the state and national levels to solve problems we see every day "downstream" in our communities. We do this work happily with Unitarian Univeralist congregations and individuals, and with interfaith partners and public interest organizations who believe that when we work together on issues for the common good, our voices will be heard.
