Resolution on Responding to Anti-Gay Rights Referenda

Union for Reform Judaism (URJ), October 1, 1993

The reprehensible nature of the anti-gay initiatives and the fact that they are spreading throughout the body politic obligate us as a religious body to register a strong protest when such referenda or statutes pass. In certain instances, when the discrimination practiced by states or governments has been particularly blatant, the UAHC has registered its protest by the use of a boycott; the boycott against South Africa and against states which did not pass the ERA are precedents for such action. We call for such a boycott now. The Union of American Hebrew Congregations resolves to actively oppose state and local referenda and statutes restricting the civil rights of gays, lesbians, or bisexuals.
