UUPA is pleased to announce the introduction of a curriculum on polyamory for congregations and religious professionals.
This curriculum was originally titled
Love Makes a Family:
Understanding and Welcoming People in Diverse Relationship Patterns into our UU Congregations
During General Assembly 2015, UUPA learned that the title
Love Makes a Family: Portraits of LGBT People and their Families pre-dated UUPA's curriculum.
After General Assembly, Mim Chapman, the author of UUPA's polyamory curriculum, contacted the Family Diversity Project
to initiate a conversation about our overlapping titles.
In the interests of reducing confusion, UUPA will select a new title for the polyamory curriculum.
The curriculum will be temporarily unavailable while UUPA completes revisions.
To be notified when the curriculum again becomes available, email a notification request to
