    Collection Creator
    Unitarian Universalist Service Committee
    The Unitarian Service Committee was formed as a standing committee of the American Unitarian Association in May 1940. Its purpose was to be a committee to investigate opportunities both in America and abroad for humanitarian service. In mid 1945, the Universalist Service Committee was formed. The Unitarian Service Committee (USC) separated from the American Unitarian Association (AUA), and USC Canada became a separate entity in December 1948. In 1961, the American Unitarian Association (AUA) united with the Universalist Church of America to establish the Unitarian Universalist Association. The official establishment of the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee (UUSC) occurred in 1963, when the Unitarian Service Committee and the Universalist Service Committee merged into one. During and after World War II, The Unitarian Service Committee aided hundreds of displaced persons in occupied countries, allowing many of them to find passage to the United States. The present-day Unitarian Universalist Service Committee continues to endeavor to advance human rights and social justice throughout the world.
