Give a Gift of Environmental and Climate Action!

November 20, 2017

All proceeds from purchases at The Good Buy fund UUSC's human rights programs globally. UUSC recognizes the grave danger that changes to our climate impose on the world’s most vulnerable populations: including destroying biodiversity, food and water insecurity, and climate-forced displacement.  Here are just a few of the recent impacts gifts like yours have accomplished and continue to make change:

  • Safeguarded the water sources of 8.7 million people in Argentina and Chile due to groundbreaking work protecting glaciers. With UUSC’s support, the Center for Human Rights and Environment in Argentina led a campaign to get over 500 actors around the world to push UN Human Rights agencies to recognize and address the human rights risks and impacts caused by fracking.
  • In Papua New Guinea’s Carteret Islands, Tulele Peisa is advocating for a rights-based response to the relocation and re-settlement of Carteret Islanders whose homes are no longer habitable due to the impacts of climate change.
  • In Kiribati in the South Pacific, Te Toa Matoa is advocating for the recognition of the rights of people living with disabilities in climate change planning and disaster response efforts led by the government.

Want to help us do even more? You can make a holiday gift in the name of a loved one to help to protect the rights of those most vulnerable who are affected by increasing temperatures, low precipitation, frequent and intensified natural disasters causing sea level rise, droughts, widespread flooding, and other impacts from climate change!
