UCC Disabilities Ministries Board Calls for Nominations

Share
The UCC Disabilities Ministries Board (UCCDM) has launched a search for applicants to fill three positions on our Board of Directors. The application form can be found at https://forms.gle/PhULSVNvAPvjYWWn9. The deadline for all submissions is December 31, 2021.
 
In the interest of inclusion and diversity, the Board strongly encourages members and affiliates of UCC Historically Underrepresented Groups (HUGS) to apply.
 
The mission of UCCDM is to support all settings of the United Church of Christ, including but not limited to local congregations, associations, conferences and camps, Historically Underrepresented Groups (HUGs), and national settings, as they seek to recognize and provide access to people with disabilities in all aspects of the church's life and ministry.

The scope of this mission will include but not be limited to:
  • Affirming and claiming as its own the commitments of the UCC to be a multiracial, multicultural, open and affirming, just peace, and accessible to all ministry, recognizing that people with disabilities have a multitude of other identities, and that all justice movements are interconnected.
     
  • Encouraging all settings of the wider church to be physically, socially, and virtually accessible to and welcoming of people with disabilities. Encouraging and providing guidance to UCC settings as they work to become Accessible to All (hereafter A2A), and supporting them as they sustain their commitment.
     
  •  Participating in denominational and ecumenical conversations related to disabilities and working with the UCC national setting and community partners to promote disability justice through an intersectional framework.” From UCCDM By-Laws 2021
