MACUCC Vote to Divest was First

On December 10, 2012, the Massachusetts Conference Board of Directors voted to bring a Resolution Urging Divestment from Fossil Fuel Companies to the General Synod of the United Church of Christ in July 2013.  Prior to Synod, ten (10) other Conferences voted either to co-sponsor or endorse the resolution (they are listed in the box on the right).  You can download the resolution as passed by the Mass Conference Board and by our Annual Meting on the right.  However when the resolution was brought to Synod, the "Be It Resolved" section was edited and so the version finally passed by Synod [download here] is the version most will want to read.
