Welcoming Guest at Your Table

Guest at Your Table (GAYT) is the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee’s annual intergenerational program to raise support for and awareness about UUSC’s work to advance human rights around the globe. Donation boxes are available at DUUF throughout December. Place one prominently at your home to remember the figurative guest at your table and to cultivate a generous heart in the weeks leading up to Christmas. On Christmas Eve (or other times before the end of 2017) please bring your donation to DUUF so that we can send our collective contribution to the UUSC.

UUSC works in over 25 countries with over 75 grassroots partner organizations. This year, we are highlighting the following “guests” and partners: 

Tulele Peisa supports Carteret Islanders being displaced by severe climate change impacts in the South Pacific.

RAICES provides legal aid and support for families held in Karnes family detention center in Texas. 

The Center for Social Integrity advances human rights in Burma through youth leadership development.

The Queer Detainee Empowerment Project supports LGBTQI+ immigrants in and outside of detention in New York.
