ADVOCATES FOR SOCIAL JUSTICE UUCSR
UNITARIAN UNIVERSALIST SERVICE COMMITTEE
Reverend Waitstill Sharp was a Unitarian Minister in Massachusetts, where he lived with his wife
Martha Sharp and their two small children. In 1939 they agreed to go to Austria to establish
an “Underground Railroad” for Jewish children under Nazi occupation. The Unitarian
Universalist Service Committee (UUSC) sprang from their acts of amazing courage and
commitment to “the worth and dignity of every person.” The UUSC continues to partner
with grassroots organizations anywhere rights are threatened – by natural disasters, armed
conflicts, genocide, forced migration and systematic injustice. We can imagine the demand
for their help now!
On Sunday, April 9th, aka “Justice Sunday,” Carly Cronon from UUSC will be here to tell us
how they are responding to the horrendous crises around the world today and how we can
help. Tom Andrews, President and CEO of UUSC, is convinced that churches have a central
role to play in these dangerous times!
Come to the Board Room at 12:45 on 4/9 to find out what he means.
