Democracy in the United States has been undergoing a period of testing, including hyper-partisanship, impeachment of the president, and the rollout of the 2020 presidential election. Theoretically, urgent matters of war and peace, mass incarceration, climate change, immigration, economic policy—a host of pressing issues—are decided in the United States by a government “of the people, by the people and for the people.” Ned will reflect on the state of democracy in America and consider ways in which all stakeholders in our democracy might more effectively affirm and promote one of the seven core values of Unitarian Universalism: “the right of conscience and use of the democratic process in our congregations and in society at large.”
Rev. Ned Wight retired in August 2019 from his position as Interim Senior Minister of the Unitarian Universalist Congregation at Shelter Rock in Manhasset, New York. Prior to that position, he served for a decade as Executive Director of the congregation’s UU Veatch Program, which makes grants to social change organizations around the country. He has also served UU congregations in California and Massachusetts. He holds degrees from Harvard Divinity School, Boston University and Stanford University. He currently chairs the board of the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee, partnering with grassroots organizations to champion human rights at home and abroad.
