When Crisis Calls: Advancing Just Migration for All
Ellen Hansen-Ellis, SWUU Board Member and Earth Alliance Co-Chair
Imagine a world where all people can travel freely, seeking a better future in times of need. This is part of the vision of the founders of the UN – a world of peace, justice, and compassion. Oct. 24 is United Nations Day, and this service will explore the UN, the UU-United Nations Office (UU-UNO), and its 2018-2019 theme: “Refugees and the Global Migration Crisis”.
