Get Involved with the Unitarian Universalist Office at the United Nations

Guided by our principles, Unitarian Universalists (UUs) are called to advocate for international human rights, peace, and climate justice, promoting the inherent worth and dignity of people and planet. The Unitarian Universalist Office at the United Nations (UU@UN) is the UU voice to the UN. Join our global social justice movement by getting involved and building awareness!
