Guest at Your Table

Guest

 

Guest at Your Table is an annual tradition in which congregation members learn about people with whom  the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee  is working. These people are your  “guests,”  and you are asked to share your blessings with them to support our shared mission.

The Unitarian Universalist Service Committee (UUSC) is a nonsectarian organization that advances human rights and social justice in the United States and around the world. Their vision is a world free from oppression and injustice, where all can realize their full human rights.  Through a combination of advocacy, education, and partnerships with grassroots organizations, UUSC promotes economic rights, advances environmental justice, defends civil liberties, and preserves the rights of people in times of humanitarian crisis.

They also engage local communities through our service-learning program, JustWorks, which introduces participants to the work of our domestic and overseas partners — who are often on the front lines of addressing social-justice issues.  Thei work is built on the conviction that all people are entitled to basic human rights, which transcend divisions of class, race, nationality, sexual orientation, ethnicity, religion, and gender.

UUSC is an associate member of the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA), but receives no general financial support from the UUA. Neither do we receive funding from federal or state governments or institutions, ensuring our independent voice.
