Interweave is a membership organization affiliated with the Unitarian Universalist Association, dedicated to the spiritual, political, and social well-being of Unitarian Universalists who are confronting oppression as lesbians, gay men, bisexuals, transgender or queer persons, and their heterosexual allies; and facilitates the celebration of the culture and lives of its members.
Goals of the Committee
To provide a safe space for LGBT persons to meet with each other and their straight allies.
To lead the congregation in making the UU Fellowship at Stony Brook a place that is welcoming to all persons regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity or expression and to communicate that to the community at large.
To participate in social action activities that support civil rights and protections for LGBT persons.
