UU-UNO

UU-UNO at the Unitarian Congregation in Mississauga

The Unitarian Universalist Association's (UUA's) involvement in the United Nations can be traced to the early part of the 20th century. Both the Unitarians and the Universalists were active in the League of Nations Asso

ciation and later closely monitored the creation of the United Nations.  The founding of the Unitarian Universalist United Nations Office (UU-UNO) can be traced to April of 1962. 

The Unitarian Congregation in Mississauga is a Blue Ribbon Congregation.

In order to be a Blue Ribbon congregation, we undertake the do the following things:

1) Have an Envoy, Youth Envoy, or Envoy Team.Envoys serve as the link between their congregation, the UU-UNO, and the United Nations. They promote UU-UNO education and advocacy in their congregations and bring local concerns to the international stage through the UU-UNO.   

2) Hold an annual UN Sunday service.In celebration of the founding of the United Nations on October 24th, 1945, the UU-UNO invites congregations to deepen their understanding of the United Nations by devoting one service in October to highlighting the work of the UU-UNO and reaffirming the connections between UU principles and vital issues dealt with at the UN. 

3) Have 15 members or 5% of your congregation donate.The annual contribution rate is $50 ($40 for ministers and seniors). 

4) Give the UU-UNO an annual budget line or collection plate. The offering at our UN Sunday service is donated to the UU-UNO!
