UU-UNO's 50th Anniversary
REMEMBER: The congregation which sends the highest percentage of delegates will receive special recognition.
As the UU-UNO representative in your congregation, we ask that you spread awareness of the UU-UNO 50th anniversary and our rich history of service at the UN. To honor this legacy, we invite you and your congregation members to join our 50th Anniversary Celebration on Saturday, November 3, 2012 from 6:30-10:00pm at the Time's Center in New York, NY. Pay tribute to the UU-UNO’s unique formula for advocacy, mutual respect and tolerance and the prospect of promoting human rights through education, economic development and environmental protection. Over the last fifty years, the UU-UNO has served as a shining example of what can be accomplished with determination, hard work and the partnership of social activists, philanthropic institutions and caring individuals throughout the world.
