Program Areas of the UU-UNO

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 UU-UNO is the UU voice to the UN. We carry out our global social justice work through several core program areas.

Climate Change

Climate Change Initiative is to build the Unitarian Universalist (UU) climate change movement through education and advocacy and to collaborate with other climate change voices at the United Nations in order to promote a world with mitigated climate change that will be viable for us and for future generations.

  • Blogs, news articles, videos, and other resources are available on the Climate Change Task Force website.

Every Child is Our Child

Every Child is Our Child project provides school supplies and healthcare cards to children made vulnerable by HIV/AIDs in Ghana. The ECOC program directly contributes to the initiative towards the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals (MDG’s), including achieving universal primary education, promoting gender equality, and combating HIV/AIDS, that were established by world leaders in 2000.

LGBT/SOGI Human Rights

A global initiative for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender/ sexual orientation and gender identity (LGBT/SOGI) Human Rights focuses on promoting UU values of equality for all people at the UN. The UU-UNO works to garner support among the Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) community, especially the faith-based community, to end criminal sanctions based on sexual orientation and gender identity in the world.

Women: Security & Peacebuilding

Women: Security and Peacebuilding promotes awareness and action through education and advocacy in women's global security and their role in peacebuilding and peace-keeping efforts, and the ratification of Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW) (U.S.) and international implementation.
