UUSC advances human rights through grassroots collaboration. In more than a dozen countries throughout the world, UUSC fosters social justice and works toward a world free from oppression. Our innovative approach and measurable impact — in promoting economic justice, bolstering environmental justice, and protecting rights at risk — are grounded in the belief that all people have inherent power, dignity, and rights.

Support immigrants' rights!

Love Resists held a 24-hour vigil on September 3 to defend the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (DACA) and Temporary Protected Status (TPS) determinations for hundreds of thousands of African, Caribbean, Asian, and Central American immigrants.

The Trump administration has set a six-month deadline for ending the program, putting nearly 1 million people at risk of immediate deportation. We need your support, no matter where you are to defend these programs and protect our communities. Join us!

The U.S. Has A Moral Responsibility to Support Refugees

ICE Moves to Destroy Records of Abuse

We are gravely concerned by reports that ICE seeks to destroy records pertaining to the sexual abuse, death, and solitary confinement of people in detention. We need more light shed on this secretive agency and urge the National Archives to deny this request.


Promoting Sustainability at Work

UUSC has been eco-audited! This July, we invited students from the Eco-Action Team to evaluate the energy efficiency of our office. Their recommendations have been extremely helpful as we work to integrate our environmental justice values into our day-to-day practices.
