National and International Projects
Our church supports these national and international projects.
Unitarian Universalist Service Committee (UUSC)
The Unitarian Universalist Service Committee is a nonsectarian human rights organization powered by grassroots collaboration. We work anywhere that natural disasters, armed conflicts, genocide, forced migration, and systematic injustice threaten human rights.
Many of our Members and Friends join the UUSC and to give to the special relief efforts, such as food and medicine for Haiti.
Unitarian Universalist United Nations Office (UU-UNO)
This is our voice at the United Nations. The UU-UNO uses Unitarian Universalist values to advocate for human rights at the United Nations.
In addition, the UU-UNO
- Helped to draft the Universal Declaration of Human Rights,
- Led the faith caucus, which established the International Criminal Court, and
- Worked to overcome UN apathy about sexual orientation and gender identity issues.
The UU-UNO has a long history of providing strong leadership in all aspects of human rights at a policy level through its United Nations consultative status.
The UU-UNO regularly reports to us on its activities.
Students and adult chaperones receive scholarships attend the United Nations Spring Seminar. The seminar helps them to learn about the workings of the UN and how to support UN peace and justice initiatives around the world.
