The Unitarian Universalist Service Committee
The Unitarian Universalist Service Committee (UUSC) is a nonsectarian organization that serves as the arm of our religion which advances human rights and social justice in the US and around the world. We envision a world free from oppression and injustice, where all can realize their full human rights.
Through a combination of advocacy, education, and partnerships with grassroots organizations, UUSC promotes economic rights, advances environmental justice, defends civil liberties, and preserves the rights of people in times of humanitarian crisis.
We also engage local communities through two experiential-learning programs, JustWorks and JustJourneys, which introduce participants to the work of our domestic and overseas partners — who are often on the front lines of addressing social-justice issues.
Our work is built on the conviction that all people are entitled to basic human rights, which transcend divisions of class, race, nationality, sexual orientation, ethnicity, religion, and gender.
HOW TO HELP UUSC
We rely on our members and supporters — people just like you — to fund our programs. Anyone wishing to support human rights and social justice is welcome to join us.
Our goal is to have 100% of 1st U members as members of UUSC as well. To join, click here.
You may also speak to me, Stephanie Garber, the 1st U UUSC representative.
UUSC is an associate member of the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA), but receives no general financial support from the UUA. Neither do we receive funding from federal or state governments or institutions, ensuring our independent voice.
HOW TO GET INVOLVED AT OUR CAMPUS
Throughout the year we have a variety of ways to support UUSC, and the good works we endorse around the world. These include Guest at your Table, a perfect family opportunity to learn and support, our Bake Sale for UUSC, Justice Sunday and the Fair Trade Coffee program.
