Guided by our principles, Unitarian Universalists (UUs) are called to advocate for international human rights; to be a voice for the voiceless by promoting the inherent worth and dignity of all living things. The Unitarian Universalist United Nations Office is able to raise our UU voices at the United Nations and directly impact human rights at a policy level, through UN consultative status.
For a non-profit organization to have any influence at the UN, it needs to have UN “consultative status.” There are two types of UN consultative status:
