Celebrate UUSC's accomplishments for human rights over its 75 years as we invite you to learn about a few highlights from our history and then join with us by participating in our efforts to advancing social justice!
The Rights in Humanitarian Crises unit works to defend the rights of marginalized groups to relief assistance, participation in reconstruction, and full recovery. We form partnerships with local or national organizations working with marginalized people and we work together to strategize about how to best defend their rights to relief and recovery. We seek to support those people who continue to struggle against the structural inequalities rooted in their societies and exacerbated by emergencies.
Civil liberties are the universal rights and freedoms that protect individuals from abuse by government power. UUSC partners with civil liberties organizations and civil society groups working to defend freedom and rights by strengthening individual liberty and democratic processes.
