Welcome to the LIAC website.
The Long Island Area Council of Unitarian Universalist Congregations (LIAC) serves as a catalyst to promote denominational awareness and effectiveness through communication, leadership and educational programs.
LIAC focuses on education, advocacy, service & spirituality, and serves as a beacon for liberal religion.
Ongoing objectives towards fulfilling our mission include:
- Promote cooperation and communication between the member societies.
- Assist member societies in the development of programs & service projects which express UU philosophy and
the principles & purposes of the Association to promote the growth of the denomination.
- Address UU concerns on Long Island.
- Facilitate cooperation and communication among member societies and the greater denominational organizations
(LIAC, Metro NY District & UUA).
Our LIAC programs:
The Student Activity Fund (SAF) encourages young Unitarian Universalists to live their religious values through internships in social action, advocacy and service provision.
The Coming of Age program teaches a more in depth understanding of Unitarian Universalism where youth can begin to develop their personal religious philosophies.
Our Whole Lives (OWL) is a series of sexuality education curricula which helps participants make informed and responsible decisions about their sexual health and behavior.
Sophia Fahs U.U. Camp is a one week summer camp in August that provides enjoyable, practical and spiritual experiences in a safe, beautiful and natural environment that will inspire children, youth and adults to explore their identities: personal, communal and Unitarian Universalist.
UU Connect provides meaningful opportunities for our youth (7th to 12th grades) to connect with other UU youth outside our congregation for activities ranging from ice skating to apple picking to social action and more.
