Unitarian Universalist Service Committee

UUSC - UNITARIAN UNIVERSALIST SERVICE COMMITTEE

Mission

The mission of this church committee is to coordinate, inform and participate in the activities which are sponsored by the UUSC, and to encourage both individual and congregational membership in UUSC.

The mission of the UUSC is to advance human rights and social justice around the world, partnering with those who confront unjust power structures and mobilizing to challenge oppressive policies. The mission of UUSC is guided by the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR), as well as Unitarian Universalist principles, which affirm the inherent worth and dignity of every person.  The four program areas are: Civil Liberties, Economic Justice, Environmental justice, and Rights in Humanitarian Crises.  The UUSC  is not part of the Unitarian Universalist Association and receives no financial support from the UUA, although both organizations sometimes work together to put UU principles into action.

What Can I Do?

                Reflect, understand and act.

Every day the media are filled with human rights stories about minimum wage demonstrations, human trafficking, voting rights, water wars, refugee camps, etc.  Reflect on these stories in order to understand their relationships to civil liberties, economic justice, environmental justice, and rights in humanitarian crises.  Then act.
