Challenging Injustice, Advancing Human Rights

UUSC and Your Congregation

United in shared values and a commitment to advancing human rights through social action, UUSC and Unitarian Universalist congregations have an enduring connection.

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 recent 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.

For questions or comments about how UUSC can support your congregation in taking part in any of our congregational programs, please contact:
