Justice and Peace
The Holy Union Sisters international congregation is a long-time member of UNANIMA International. UI is a non-governmental organization (NGO) advocating on behalf of women and children (particularly those living in poverty), immigrants and refugees, and the environment. Our work takes place primarily at the United Nations headquarters in New York, where we and other members of civil society aim to educate and influence policymakers at the global level. In solidarity, we work for systemic change to achieve a more just world.
On the ground, our unique membership consists of 20 congregations of Roman Catholic sisters whose 20,000 constituents work in over 80 countries. We bring their voices, concerns, and experiences as educators, health care providers, social workers, and development workers to the United Nations.
