Unitarian Universalists are proud to be leaders in action for social justice both locally and on an international scale. The Unitarian Universalist United Nations Office provides a voice at the United Nations for UUs and UU values. At the UN, the UU-UNO strives to affirm and promote every person’s human rights on the international stage. The UU-UNO participates in meetings, conferences, and committees at the United Nations with key UN bodies such as the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights, the Department of Public Information, the Department of Peacekeeping Operations, the UN Development Program, and the World Bank to discuss with them how they can act in the interest of creating a world community that is accepting, just, and compassionate.
The UU-UNO’s advocacy at the UN tackles many issues relating to upholding human rights, with an emphasis on certain issue areas. The office’s primary programming includes initiatives for sexual orientation and gender identity human rights, women’s rights, climate change, and migration justice. Additionally, the UU-UNO has a program in Ghana called Every Child is Our Child that provides school supplies and healthcare cards to children made vulnerable by HIV/AIDS in Ghana.
