International Social Justice Affirming and promoting the goal of world community with Peace, Liberty and Justice for all, Unitarian Universalists (UUs) become internationally engaged in diverse ways.
Discover the Global U/U StoryUnitarians, Universalists, and Unitarian Universalists (U/U) around the world are connected through a story of bold, compassionate faith that we’ve been creating together for centuries. Struggling for human rights alongside those that demand it, influencing governmental policy in the name of justice, passionately promoting a message of interfaith peace and solidarity, and building faithful worshipping communities—each of us has a part, and a stake, in the story we share.
Find Yourself In ItProviding resources and guidance within the wide milieu of international UU programs and causes, the Unitarian Universalist Association's (UUA's) International Office assists congregations in finding ways of answering our sixth principle call to reach out beyond church walls and borders. By coordinating with a Coalition of U/U International Organizations involved in international engagement and maintaining and developing linkages with historic and new U/U communities around the world, we share the Global U/U story and help you find your place within it.
Shape ItAdvancing justice and equity in India since 1984, the UUA's Holdeen India Program (UUHIP) partners with organizations that stand with the country's most vulnerable citizens as they seek dignity and empowerment. Translating UU values into bold action, UUHIP supports long-term organizational partnerships in a spirit of solidarity and global community.
Bend Its Arc Toward JusticeYour voice at the United Nations, the UUA's United Nations Office (UU-UNO) is engaged in international advocacy work at the UN based on UU values. From involvement in the drafting of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, to leading the faith caucus to establish the International Criminal Court, to overcoming UN apathy about sexual orientation and gender identity issues, the UU-UNO provides strong leadership in all aspects of human rights.
