The Unitarian Universalist Service Committee (UUSC) is a nonprofit, nonsectarian organization advancing human rights together with an international community of grassroots partners and advocates.

We focus our work on intersecting roots of injustice to defend rights at risk due to criminalization and systemic oppression of people based on their identity. We support self-determination and defend the rights of people displaced due to climate, conflict or economic hardships; and we respond to humanitarian crises as partners with people whose access to aid is most limited.

Striving to center the voices of people most affected by injustice, UUSC creates eye-to-eye relationships with frontline grassroots movements across the world that support marginalized communities in determining their steps for the future.

I am a native Fijian from the village of Kocoma in the chiefly province of Cakaudrove in Fiji. I am an immigrant in the United States and work as the Senior Partnership Officer for Climate Justice & Crisis Response at the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee (UUSC), which is an international human rights organization. I manage UUSC's climate justice work with an emphasis on protecting the rights of people who are at risk of and losing their homes due to the impacts of climate change. I am joining to learn more about this network and to find ways to engage collaboratively, as well as to find opportunities to share UUSC's work.
