2005 Annual ReportUnitarian Universalist Service CommitteeA World Free from Oppression and InjusticeTsunami survivors, Chittoor District, IndiaOur VisionThe Unitarian Universalist Service Committee envisions a world free from oppression and injustice, where all can realize their full human rights.Our MissionThe Unitarian Universalist Service Committee advances human rights and social justice around the world, partnering with those who confront unjust power structures and mobilizing to challenge oppressive policies. Prawn shers after the tsunami, Tamil Nadu, IndiaAnnual Report 2005 1A Message for Our Members and SupportersDecember 10, 2005We write this letter on the day in which the world remembers the birth of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Its framers, including Eleanor Roosevelt, hoped it would help to prevent another Holocaust. On the day that we think of as the beginning of the modern era of human rights, we are pleased to announce that two of our founders, the Rev. Waitstill Sharp and Martha Sharp, have become only the second and third U.S. citizens to be honored as Righteous Among the Nations. Its an honor conferred by the Yad Vashem Holocaust memorial museum in Israel to non-Jews who risked their lives to save Jewish lives during World War II.After the Holocaust, people said, Never again. However, we cant help observing that this tremendous honor for our founders was announced just weeks after Charlie returned from a fact-nding trip to Chad, where he visited camps lled with refugees eeing the slow genocide in neighboring Darfur, Sudan, and heard their stories.As UUSC continues the legacy of our founders by focusing on the humanitarian crises, economic and environmental injustice, and erosion of civil liberties in todays world, the organization continues to grow in strength and inuence. With each passing year, we become an ever more eective voice and stronger presence for human rights around the world and in the United States. UUSCs 40,000 members and supporters, our NGO partners, and our sta are the moral force through which we advance social justice and human rights around the world.One of the great tasks we face is how to pass the torch of making justice and advancing human rights to the next generation. Weve had a good start this year and hope that youll help us continue this important task.But our legacy isnt only in how we prepare future generations of activists. As the Sharps grandchildren celebrate their grandparents heroism of some 65 years ago, we should also ask how our grandchildren will view the actions we take today on behalf of those facing persecution and genocide. We dont always have to risk our own lives, but at least we can stand up and speak out, we can bear witness, and we can say, Not on our watch.Charlie ClementsPresidentTodd JonesChair, Board of TrusteesCharlie ClementsTodd Jones2 Unitarian Universalist Service CommitteeForging Partnerships Around the WorldHuman rights and social justice have never advanced without a struggle. Sustained positive change has always been built through the work of organized activists with the courage to challenge and confront oppression.UUSC has supported such activism since its inception, when our founders risked their lives working with other committed individuals to rescue victims of Nazi persecution in World War II. Today, our partnership model seeks to build activism by people and their organizations to challenge and confront injustice.UUSC identies partner organizations in the United States and around the world that develop, implement, and advance solutions to the human rights and social justice problems in their communities and provides technical, organizational, and nancial assistance to help them confront oppression. UUSC also partners with our dedicated members and supporters some 40,000 strong whose united voices make a powerful statement for human rights around the world. Te moral force of these individuals and our local grassroots partner organizations leverages the strength of UUSCs work and maximizes its impact, making a dierence in thousands of lives. New program directionsIn early 2005, UUSC completed an intensive review and refocus of its program areas. Tis inclusive process resulted in the Selected UUSC programs in FY 2005 In Burundi and the Democratic Republic of Congo, UUSC supported organizations working to strengthen womens par-ticipation in peace and conict resolution. In India, UUSC partnered with groups promoting the rights of indigenous peoples, Dalits (un-touchables), and sex workers. On the Burma/Thai border, UUSC partners included the Mae Tao clinic, which serves ethnic refugees from Burma. UUSC supported indig-enous grassroots orga-nizations in Guatemalain their quest for justice, equality, and womens empowerment.creation of four new UUSC program areas, each viewed through the lens of race, class, and gender attributes that render large groups of people vulnerable to human rights abuses. Te four UUSC program areas are: Economic JusticeDefending peoples right to work in dignity for a living wage and to organize to defend this right. Environmental JusticeWorking with grassroots organizations around the world in their struggles against water privatization and depletion. Civil LibertiesEducating and mobilizing advocates to bring an end to U.S.-sponsored torture through the STOP (Stop Torture Permanently) Campaign. Rights in Humanitarian CrisesProviding assistance to marginalized, neglected, and politically oppressed populations after disasters, whether natural or man-made.In each of these areas, UUSC began a care-ful and thorough process of identifying partner organizations. Over the next sev-eral years, we will work with these partner organizations to advance our shared goals of social justice and human rights.UUSC also continued our ongoing program commitments until the transition to the new programs was completed, supporting program partners around the world defending the rights of women, 2005 Annual Report(for the period of July 1, 2004 June 30, 2005)Annual Report 2005 3children, and oppressed racial, ethnic, and indigenous groups. Creating activistsTis year, UUSC provided our members and supporters with many opportunities to engage in activism on human rights and social justice issues. We also provided experiential learning opportunities to further motivate participants to be activists in their own communities. And through programs such as Guest at Your Table and Justice Sunday, our members and supporters in UU congregations across the country stood together for annual celebrations of human rights and social justice. Our Human Rights Defenders network and other supporters responded in large numbers to action alerts calling for justice on a range of issues, including human rights violations in Burma. In one example of the power of UUSCs voice, four major universities canceled planned tours to that country thanks in part to the eorts of our dedicated constituency.Te combined power of UUSCs members and supporters, our dedicated sta, and our partners across the globe provides a strong voice as we advocate for justice and confront oppressive policies. As our new programs take shape, UUSCs reputation as a strong advocacy organization is growing. When we join together, our voice for human rights and social justice can be even stronger.Mayan women workers, Santiago Atitln, GuatemalaUUSC helps youth activists become involved in advocacy efforts including letter-writing campaigns on behalf of the STOP Campaign and other initiatives. I want to be proud of every aspect of being American, wrote one young participant in a letter to her member of Congress. If we spread hatred, it will come back to us, for what goes around comes around. We want people abroad to respect us, not hate us. I ask you to please support the bill to ban torture by proxy.In June, a resolution demanding an end to U.S.-sponsored torture was approved unani-mously by the General Assembly of the Unitar-ian Universalist Asso-ciation. The 1,800 delegates endorsed the UUSC-sponsored Action of Immediate Witness stating that high-level U.S. ofcials must be held accountable for their involvement in authorizing torture.Mobilizing to Stop Torture Permanently Our national values were shaken to the core by the revelation of prisoner abuse by U.S. service personnel in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Guantnamo Bay. Te public response to the grim photographs of the detainee torture at Abu Ghraib was one of nearly universal horror and rejection. Te framers of our Constitution banned torture in this country, and the United States is signatory to several international treaties against torture. Although this country faces many divisive issues, torture is not a partisan matter. It is abhorrent to our national values, it is illegal, and it sows dangerous seeds of hatred against the United States abroad.UUSC launched the STOP (Stop Torture Permanently) Campaign in 2004 to educate and mobilize human rights activists to bring an end to U.S.-sponsored torture. Te campaign focuses primarily on stopping the ocial authorization and use of torture, whether mental or physical or by proxy. Trough the STOP Campaign, UUSC shines a light on the realities of U.S. torture practices and the requirements of domestic laws and international treaties prohibiting torture. We mobilize members and supporters, and keep the media and national leadership informed about the issue, through action alerts, intensive trainings, and events around the country.Te STOP Campaign concentrated on grassroots eorts to build a broad, nationwide coalition of student organizations and human rights and faith-based networks. Trough this coalition, the campaign produced the powerful Call for Justice Weekend against U.S.-sponsored torture, held in September 2005 in Washington, D.C. General Assembly of the UUA, Fort Worth, Tex.4 Unitarian Universalist Service CommitteeDefending Democracy JustWorks participants on a voter registration drive, Boston, Mass.Defending DemocracyTe critical 2004 presidential election mobilized activists across the country including UUSC members and supporters to get to the polls and vote. Across the United States, UUSC led voter education initiatives, registered new voters, and provided information for forums in specic geographic areas.Despite the passage of the 26th Amendment in 1971, which lowered the voting age from 21 to 18, today fewer than half of the nations 18- to 30-year-olds turn out to vote. To increase the number of voters in this age group which represents nearly one-quarter of the total U.S. population UUSC focused its Defending Democracy project on strengthening youth participation in the electoral process in the months leading up to the election.Participants in UUSCs Defending Democracy JustWorks camp, held in Boston to coincide with the Democratic National Convention, engaged in voter registration, created their own get-out-the-vote campaigns, and learned how to promote their cause in the media. Tose who took part in UUSCs inaugural Freedom Summer: A Civil Rights Journey worked with the Georgia Citizens Coalition on Hunger, a UUSC partner, to register voters in various Atlanta neighborhoods.Recognizing that the work of defending democracy does not end with the election of a president, UUSC in collaboration with the Unitarian Universalist Association continues to support statewide advocacy networks. UUSC currently provides grants and technical assistance to networks in California, Florida, Michigan, Minnesota, New Hampshire, and Wisconsin. Tese networks mobilize constituents on a variety of national and international UUSC issues, such as the STOP (Stop Torture Permanently) Campaign and water privatization.Everyone has the right to take part in the government of his country, directly or through freely chosen representatives . . . The will of the people shall be the basis of the authority of government.--Universal Declaration of Human Rights, Article 21I learned how I can start from scratch, creating my own voter organization, and how to become more involved with the community directly.--Laura Chernin, Defending Democracy camp participantAnnual Report 2005 56 Unitarian Universalist Service CommitteeResponding to Humanitarian CrisesTe media can show us the terrible aftermath of a disaster ruined homes, destroyed infrastructure, lives upended. But they cannot so easily show us the other, deeper obstacles confronting individuals and communities as they go about rebuilding their lives. As disasters reveal the fault lines of social, economic, and political inequality in societies, the frequent result is that certain groups become enriched, while poor and disadvantaged populations are left even poorer and more disadvantaged. UUSCs work in humanitarian crises seeks to ensure that disaster response takes into account the rights of all those aected. As an organization that values partnership with local groups, we work to honor and support peoples own response to crises in their lives.In the aftermath of the tsunami, UUSC supported organizations that provided: Trauma counseling and skills training for Dalit women in Tamil Nadu, India. Immediate relief and long-term livelihood rehabilita-tion in Aceh and North Sumatra, Indonesia. Livelihood reconstruction for Tamil, Muslim, and Sin-halese families in eastern Sri Lanka. Emergency assistance, trauma counseling, and livelihood rehabilitation for Burmese migrants living in Thailand.Tsunami and beyondWe responded to the needs of survivors of the December 26, 2004, Indian Ocean tsunami with the over $2 million raised through the joint UUSC-UUA Tsunami Relief Fund. We have been working with UUSC and UUA Holdeen India Program partners on relief for tsunami survivors in India, as well as with local grassroots groups in Sri Lanka and Indonesia. In addition, we are working in Tailand with Burmese migrants, one of the groups of survivors who have largely been overlooked.Last year, UUSC also provided support in: Afghanistan, where the Afghan Womens Network empowered women to improve the quality of their lives, and the Afghan Womens Department sponsored management training for women. Iraq, where Women for Women International provided direct aid, established skills training, and instituted income-generation programs, and All Our Children provided basic health care. Darfur, Sudan, where the Darfur Peace and Development Organization worked on conict resolution. Te United States, where the National Immigration Project responded to abuses of civil liberties and immigrant rights resulting from current immigration-enforcement practices. Haiti, where the Lambi Fund provided relief for survivors of Hurricane Jeanne.

Like the 65 families that live in this housing, they were given a house with two rooms and a kitchen, and they share a latrine with two other families.Tsunami survivors in semipermanent housing, Govinapam, Sri Lanka8 Unitarian Universalist Service CommitteeProviding Experiential Learning Opportunities One major aspect of UUSCs eorts is providing opportunities to engage our members and supporters in hands-on experience with social justice and human rights issues. Trough our JustWorks experiential learning camps short-term projects that help volunteers examine and understand the causes and damaging eects of injustice participants become directly involved in our justice-making work, interacting with people in local communities and experiencing social justice struggles rsthand.JustWorks camps last year included voter registration and get-out-the-vote programs in the period leading up to the 2004 presidential election. UUSC trained youth and young adults who participated in the July 2004 Defending Democracy camp in Boston to organize, educate, and register voters. Participants then returned to their hometowns to follow up with electoral activism in their own neighborhoods. Other JustWorks camps focused on civil rights activism and learning and service opportunities in Native American communities. JustWorks campsIn 2004, UUSC launched Freedom Summer: A Civil Rights Journey, during which participants met with many who were on the front lines of the civil rights struggles of the 1960s. Te program was so popular that it is now an annual intergenerational event.Participants in the Civil Rights Journey traveled through the cities of Atlanta, Ga., and Birmingham, Selma, and Montgomery, Ala., to view historically signicant sites and speak with civil rights activists. For the second part of the camp, the group partnered with the Georgia Citizens Coalition on Hunger (GCCH), a nonprot organization focusing on poverty issues. Te Civil Rights Journey participants registered voters, worked on the GCCH organic farm, and assisted in a building project.Te Human Rights Camp for teenagers in August 2004 was a collaboration among UUSC, the Muckleshoot Indians of Auburn, Wash., and the UUAs Pacic Northwest District. Participants explored the connections among race, ecology, and the economy in the local area.For the second year in a row, a UU youth group participated in the Mohawk Valley camp, joining members of the Kanatsiohareke Mohawk Community in Fonda, N.Y., for cultural learning and service projects on resettled native land. In April 2005, teenagers from the Winchester Unitarian Society of Winchester, Mass., dedicated their weeklong school vacation to learning about Native American life and culture.Everywhere we went was important and helped me put pieces of history together to make a coherent story in my mind. The JustWorks camp was one of those life-changing experiences that you only get once, and Im very grateful to have been a part of it.--Chloe Silva, Civil Rights Journey participantJustWorks camp participants during Freedom Summer: A Civil Rights Journey in Atlanta, Ga.Annual Report 2005 9My experience at the Mohawk Valley camp was incredible. There are really no other words to describe it. It was a really perspective-changing experience to be that close to the land. It reminded me of our real purpose, both spiritual and physical.-- Carol Fraser, Mohawk Valley camp participantMohawk Valley JustWorks camp participants at the Kanatsiohareke Mohawk Community, Fonda, N.Y.Promoting Fair TradeIn todays increasingly unregulated global economy, a growing number of people are working outside legal labor protection. Participants in the informal economy including street vendors, market women, day laborers, and tea and coee producers are those most in need of support in their struggles for a living wage and their right to organize. UUSC works with partner organizations to protect workers rights and to advocate for those protections on the national level in countries around the world and in the United States.An important way in which UUSC supports these marginalized workers is by advocating that products grown by small producers in the Global South are fairly traded. When products such as coee, tea, and cocoa are purchased through fair trade, the small farmers who produce these goods are guaranteed a fair price that is usually above market. When they receive a fair price, these farmers can then aord to pay for basic needs for their families, including food, shelter, and education. For UUSC, fair trade is a great deal more than U.S. consumers paying a bit more for their cup of coee.UUSC Coee ProjectTrough the UUSC Coee Project, more than 700 Unitarian Universalist congregations nationwide support fair trade by serving Equal Exchange coee during their coee hours. Tese congregations represent the largest percentage of participation by any denominational group working in partnership with Equal Exchange, a 100 percent fair trade company.Trough their congregational participation in the Coee Project, UUs have a simple way to promote their values and enjoy a connection to UUSCs human rights work. Tey can also support local human rights initiatives in coee-growing regions. UUSC receives a small percentage of the sale proceeds to provide grants to local grassroots organizations in these regions, such as the current womens leadership training course at the Manos Campesinas cooperative in Guatemala. More than 700 con-gregations, ofces, schools, and Unitarian Universalist groups participate in the UUSC Coffee Project, purchas-ing more than 35 tons of fairly traded coffee, tea, chocolate, and sugar from Equal Ex-change, a 100 percent fair trade company. 10 Unitarian Universalist Service CommitteeWhen you drink a cup of fairly traded coffee, you are supporting one or two or three small-scale farmers on the other side of the world, so they can have a better life and education for their children. -- Gabriel Ulomi, Kilimanjaro Native Cooperative Union, TanzaniaPicking coffee beans at the CECOCAFEN coffee cooperative, NicaraguaFair trade goods for sale at the UU Society of Wellesley Hills, Wellesley, Mass.Robin MacIlroy and William SpearsCaroline and Harold MaldePeter MancollSusan Mann and G.
