More Democracy

To increase participation in elections, and help clarify the choices before the electorate, the UUA Board ought to recognize groups whose purpose is to recruit and support candidates for District offices and boards, and for the Board of Trustees.

People who wish to influence the UUA as a whole should have the opportunity to organize themselves, promote their views, and become part of the official leadership of the Association. Yes, we need factions and parties.

I know the damage factionalism can do.

What are the benefits?

AFA*I*AC the UUA already does have factions if not parties. Some UUA factions are just not all that *visible*.
