Richard Speck & Janet Tillman, Why We Support UUSC:

The Unitarian Universalist Service Committee (UUSC) was started by the American Unitarian Association for international support of war refugees from Nazi Germany in 1939. Today there is a close working relationship between the UUSC and the Unitarian Universalist Association in service projects in America and the larger world that show our UU values in service to those in need.
The UU College of Social Justice is a jointly supported program to educate us on the wider world and how we can live our values serving others. We have been long time contributors to the annual appeals for funding. We have seen the work that UUSC does with partner organizations around the world.
UUSC is providing assistance to immigrants, people with disabilities, and people of color in resource-poor communities suffering from the after effects of Hurricane Harvey. They are supporting partner organizations in Croatia, Serbia, Hungary, Greece, and Macedonia to ensure that Syrian refugees are granted asylum in Europe or the United States. As their motto states: Challenging Injustice, Advancing Human Rights.
In these trying times of global climate change, mass human displacement due to war and famine, and human rights abuses both here and abroad, the UUSC needs our help to continue the struggle to bend the moral arc of the universe towards justice. The vast support for UUSC comes from our congregations through the annual appeal. Please join us in supporting this worthy partner.
