Update 12/8/22: The Biden administration has now appealed Judge Sullivan's ruling, backtracking yet again on their promises to protect asylum rights. While the outcome of the litigation is not yet clear, the administration's decision increases the odds that Title 42 will remain in effect past its currently-scheduled end date.

UUSC’s Human Rights Leadership Celebration

In recognition of the 73rd anniversary of the adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, UUSC hosted our annual Human Rights Leadership Celebration on Thursday, December 9, 2021. The evening featured a keynote presentation with Isabel Wilkerson, winner of the Pulitzer Prize and the National Humanities Medal, and author of the critically acclaimed, New York Times bestsellers The Warmth of Other Suns and Caste: The Origins of Our Discontents. During the program we also highlighted the social justice work of UU congregations and enjoyed two special musical performances.

Please click below to view portions of our celebration. We will be rebroadcasting the interview with Ms. Wilkerson sometime later this spring. Thank you for your interest in UUSC’s Human Rights Leadership Celebration.
