Unitarian Universalist Service Committee (UUSC), is a membership organization that is a voice for human rights and social justice. By neither seeking nor accepting government funds, UUSC maintains a high level of independence. UUSC receives approximately 60% of its annual budget from member contributions. As an organization with an active membership base, UUSC can advocate vigorously for economic justice, environmental justice, and rights at risk. Here at Columbine we support the good work of UUSC, especially their Guest at Your Table Program. Every year our children and you raise funds for this program and enjoy learning about the individual stories of human rights leaders from around the world.
What are the differences between UUSC and the UUA?
UUSC is an independent, nonsectarian, nonprofit agency. The UUA (Unitarian Universalist Association) is a religious organization for Unitarian Universalist congregations. UUSC is an affiliate of the UUA, but does not receive funding from it. More than 90% of UUSC members are also members of UU congregations. Being a member of Columbine UU Church and/or contributing to the congregation does not make you a members of, or donor to, UUSC.
Become a member of UUSC. Your contribution will support important work for justice in the United States and around the world. As a member, you will join a community of more than 32,000 UUSC supporters who share your ideals. You will also stay up-to-date on human rights issues through regular mailings, action alerts, and a subscription to our newsletter, Rights Now.
