UN Sunday Services at Unitarian Church of Staten Island, Staten Island, NY
Celebrating the Incredible Work of the UU United Nations Office
For our UN Sunday, we hosted a presentation by Bruce Knotts, the Executive Director of the UU UNO Office. Bruce described the many initiatives of the Office, including the educational support of orphans in Africa, lifting up the issues of LGBTQ communities worldwide, work on nuclear disarmament and efforts to draw attention to the US military's inhumane reliance on drone warfare. He emphasized the unique influence the office has developed in multiple UN committees and highlighted the funding needs that come with that unique status.
Bruce's presentation was well received by the congregation and resulted in multiple donations to the Office. It also spurred in interest in developing an intergenerational Envoy team.
