The Unitarian Universalist Service Committee advances human rights through grassroots collaborations.
UUSC and Your Congregation
Unitarian Universalist congregations have been fundamental to UUSC’s human rights programs since our founders, a UU minister and his wife, left their congregation in Wellesley, Mass., to help Jews and political dissidents escape the Nazis. You can learn more about their journey in the PBS documentary Defying the Nazis: The Sharps’ War.
Today, UUSC is honored to partner with congregations to amplify social justice efforts through advocacy and engagement, long-standing fundraising programs, and justice education programs and resources with the UU College of Social Justice.
