Donate now to support the Unitarian Universalist voice at the United Nations.

From involvement in drafting the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, to leading the faith caucus to establish the International Criminal Court, to overcoming UN apathy about sexual orientation & gender identity issues, the Unitarian Universalist Association Office at the United Nations has a long history of providing strong leadership in all aspects of human rights at a policy level.

How We Work

The Unitarian Universalist Association Office at the United Nations is a non-governmental organization in association with the United Nations Department of Global Communications and in consultative status with the United Nations Economic and Social Council. The UUA Office at the UN represents the UUA and the Canadian Unitarian Council at the United Nations, where we promote the goal of world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all, as reflected in the United Nations Charter. Through targeted education, advocacy, and outreach, we engage Unitarian Universalists in support of international cooperation and the work of the UN.

Support this critical work. Help us build a more peaceful, just, and sustainable world community based on UU values. Donate now.

At the United Nations, the UUA Office's advocacy encompasses several aspects of human rights, climate, and peace work, bringing the UU perspective to international justice movements. Learn about our program areas.
