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 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.
