In November we will be sharing our plate collection all month with the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee, or UUSC.
UUSC’s work began in 1939, when Rev. Waitstill and Martha Sharpe traveled to Prague to assist refugees attempting to escape Nazi persecution in Europe.
Now, more than 80 years later, UUSC’s continues to work to advance human rights and social justice around the world by joining with grassroots partner organizations who are confronting unjust power structures in regions of conflict and natural disaster. This worthy work is grounded in the belief that all people have inherent power and dignity.
More information about UUSC’s current projects, along with learning materials and lively video, is available at uusc.org.
UUSC is based on the UN Declaration of Human Rights and the UU Principles. The UUA does not financially support UUSC, but they rely on membership, congregational, and private support.
