Unitarian Universalist Service Committee
Unitarian Universalist Service Committee (UUSC) is a nonsectarian organization that advances human rights and social justice in the United States and around the world, envisioning a world free from oppression and injustice, where all can realize their full human rights. It originated 70 years ago to help people escape Nazi persecution.
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.
They also engage communities around the world by teaming up with the UU College of Social Justice, which introduces participants to the work of domestic and overseas partners who are often on the front lines of addressing social justice issues.
UUSC’s efforts are 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.
Main Line Unitarian Church has a long history of supporting UUSC, and we encourage every member’s support by:
- Becoming a UUSC volunteer
- Participating in the annual holiday Guest at Your Table program
- Attending special UUSC events at the church
- Learning more about UUSC by visiting www.uusc.org
- UUSC is financially independent from the Unitarian Universalist Association and the federal government. Member contributions make up about 60% of its annual budget.
