About Us

True peace is not merely the absence of tension: it is the presence of justice.
  --  Martin Luther King Jr.

UUs for Justice in the Middle East (UUJME) is an independent organization of concerned UUs working to educate ourselves and our fellow UUs and citizens about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and its legal, moral and ethical issues in an effort to bring about peace and justice in Israel-Palestine, including a settlement of the conflict affirming the equality, dignity, freedom and security of all peoples involved.

UUJME has no official affiliation with the Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations (UUA), and does not speak for the UUA.  We are, however, guided by UU principles, as well as international law, UN resolutions, respect for human rights and religious freedom, and UU actions and statements.  UUJME is incorporated in Massachusetts as UUJMECorp.
