We invite everyone to take part: individuals, families, small groups, congregations, and community organizations.
Over the decades, Guest at Your Table has raised millions of dollars for human rights projects that have made a real difference in people’s lives.

​What is this year’s Guest at Your Table theme?
This year Guest at Your Table highlights the empowerment of refugees and displaced people. One of UUSC’s major focuses is serving the people who are most overlooked or discriminated against in the midst of humanitarian crises such as forced migration, large-scale conflicts, genocide, and natural disasters. As UUSC celebrates its 75th anniversary this year, we’ll look back to our origin: Martha and Rev. Waitstill Sharp helping European refugees escape persecution during World War II. We are excited to share several inspiring stories this year!
