The UU Growth Lab, a group on Facebook, was created to serve as a free space and think tank for Unitarian Universalist Change Agents, primarily within the Unitarian Universalist Association though we are not exclusive. In early 2011 I launched the lab in response to minister colleagues expressing to me that they didn’t feel safe sharing opinions on a public blog that might go against institutional norms, power structures and so on. I had also read the book Switch: How to Change Things When Change Is Hard which discusses the need to create a space for reformers to gather, exchange ideas and organize. It took one day for 50 people to join the lab. In three months membership hit 500, today it is nearly 1,200.
