#WageOutrage: The minimum wage does not support a family by providing security.
Water is not a luxury good. It's a basic human right due to all people, including low-income individuals.
Help us send a strong message to Detroit’s emergency manager and water utility director. Sign the petition opposing Detroit water shutoffs.
Together, we can raise the minimum wage and advance workers’ rights!

At least 57.8 million Americans live with one or more disabilities. Despite that, the U.S. Senate has so far refused to ratify the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.
This international treaty would strengthen and protect the rights — including the human right to water, which the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee promotes worldwide — of people too often ignored. Last year, U.S. ratification of the treaty failed by just five votes. Take action to make sure that this year, the Senate will vote to protect the rights of people living with disabilities!
