Historical Note

The Pacific Northwest District of the Unitarian Universalist Association formed in 1962 with forty seven fellowships and thirteen churches across Oregon, Washington, Idaho, British Columbia, Montana, and Alaska. The organization formed to promote Unitarian Universalist purposes and principles. Their principles are based on worth and dignity of the individual, human relations defined by equity, justice and compassion, acceptance of the individual, right of individual conscience and democratic processes in life and in the congregation.
