"Culture of Cruelty" Report by No More Deaths

On March 27, 2012, the Abuse Documentation Group of our social justice ministry, No More Deaths, was honored with a rare invitation to testify at hearings in Washington, D.C., before the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights of the Organization of American States.

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and Customs and Border Protection (CBP) were summoned to answer questions from the IACHR commissioners about our "Culture of Cruelty" report, documenting human rights abuses by U.S. Border Patrol against migrants in their custody. (See the report at www.nomoredeaths.org.)

"Culture of Cruelty" was also presented at a Congressional briefing and a White House policy advisor. It received national news coverage in Reuters, CNN, USA Today and other news outlets.

The report is based on three years of documenting almost 30,000 human rights abuses through interviews with more than 12,000 just-deported migrants in Nogales, Naco and Agua Prieta, Sonora, Mexico. The work on the research and report was funded by the Unitarian Universalist Funding Program during the past two years.

No More Deaths also worked with the UU United Nations Office (UNO), the UN High Commissioner on Human Rights, Amnesty International USA and the UUA Standing on the Side of Love campaign.

Stained Glass Window

Our Seven Principles

We, the member congregations of the Unitarian Universalist Association, covenant to affirm and promote:

  • The inherent worth and dignity of every person
  • Justice, equity and compassion in human relations
  • Acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations
  • A free and responsible search for truth and meaning
  • The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large
  • The goal of world community with peace, liberty and justice for all.
  • Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.

Religious Education

Our Vision

Our lifespan learning community seeks to nurture and stimulate the spiritual, intellectual, emotional, and social growth of people of all ages, stages of faith and levels of religious experience.

We envision a program that is rooted in our UU principles and a free and responsible search for meaning that through the thoughts and actions of our lives, transforms us, our community, and our world.
