Theresa Ines Soto to change the name of the UUA’s flag-ship social justice campaign “Standing on the Side of Love” to something less ableist. After some debate, it passed overwhelmingly. It was an historic moment when ableism was at last recognized as something important within Unitarian Universalism.
