Dear UUSC members and supporters,Our partner-based strategy is designed to achieve a long-term impact on the causeso justice and human rights by building civic activism.Firstly, we support the eorts o our domestic and international partners byproviding seed grants and technical support and by acilitating their collaboration inbroader social movements. Secondly, we inuence public and private institutionalpolicies and monitor their implementation. Thirdly, we link the work o our programpartners with our constituents, providing issue-related inormation and skills thatmake our human-rights advocates even more eective.Over the last year, UUSC worked with the Technical Development Corporation(TDC), one o Boston’s oldest not-or-profts, on a midcourse evaluation o ourStrategic Plan (2005-2010). As part o this work, TDC spoke with UUSC boardmembers, sta, volunteers, and other stakeholders — and randomly chose a sampleo UUSC partners or in-depth interviews. The eedback rom our partners wasoverwhelmingly positive.According to TDC’s summary, “UUSC partners consistently reported theirpartnership…had been very positive and had brought about numerous tangibleand intangible benefts.” TDC concluded, “In working with hundreds o nonproftorganizations, it is rare to fnd grantees and unders so closely aligned in mission andpurpose and that clearly hold one another in such high esteem.”We hope you appreciate reading the perspectives o several o our partners in thisannual report. These brave individuals take daily risks as they conront unjust powerstructures and are the ones with whom we stand when we mobilize to challengeoppressive policies. We are grateul or your support, which makes these partnerships— this joining o many hands — possible.Sincerely,
William F. Schulz Charlie ClementsChair, Board of Trustees President and CEO
