The Unitarian Universalist Service Committee was founded in 1939, to help refugees secretly evacuate form Europe and the oncoming Nazi regimes. They have been working for justice and human rights ever since.
The UUSC partners around the world with grassroots organizations through collaborative efforts by awarding grants to organizations involved with solving their community problems. Currently involved in 77 worldwide projects, the UUSC has 22 projects here in North America. These include one in middle Georgia where they have partnered with GLAHR, the Georgia Latino Alliance for Human Rights. This project is creating ICE free zones for immigrant families. Alabama is the site of another local project. ACRE, the Alabama Center for Rural enterprise, in Lowdnes County, one of the poorest in the nation, is working to develop proper sanitation methods for people whose yards overflow with raw sewage when it rains heavily.
The Guest At Your Table program is the annual fund drive for the UUSC. This year’s theme is: Small Change is Big Change. Collection boxes are available at church. Please use them throughout the month of November to make a difference in the lives of people all over the world.
I donate to the UUSC because they put my Unitarian Universalist values in action. Won’t you?
