Chris MacCormack has been MUUF’s emissary from The Unitarian Universalist Service Committee for many years. Her travels over many parts of the world make her very knowledgeable about situations worldwide. Chris was a Peace Corps worker in San Salvador, then was Spanish teacher at Manatee High School. When she retired she traveled abroad teaching English: to Peru, Ecuador, Mexico, Honduras, Turkey, Thai land, and Japan .
The UUSC, a partner organization with UUA, is a nonprofit organization advancing human rights and social justice with 80 grassroots partners in the US and worldwide. This year makes 80 years since Martha and Waitstill Sharp started the UUSC assisting refugees in Europe. Chris says (and MUUF members agree) that when I want to make a contribution after an emergency or for a cause such as immigration reform, I know that my funds sent through UUSC will be put to very good use.
It is a good way to learn about the work of UUSC and a perfect time to renew our individual membership for $40 or make donations. We currently have 24 members and in 2018 we earned the Creating Justice Banner.
This year the theme is “Women Leaders, Strong Communities” to recognize the many influential women leaders in social justice organizations worldwide
