Through its offices and partnerships in the former Soviet Union (FSU), UCSJ is able to give first-hand reports of human rights abuses as they occur in the region. Our direct fact finding is used by the U.S. Department of State and other organizations in their work.
UCSJ has partnered with over 55 other NGOs to report on and discuss incidents of human rights transgressions through the blog “Coalition Against Hate (Коалиция против ненависти).” The main purpose of the “Coalition Against Hate” is to unite the NGOs in their struggle against xenophobia, neo-Nazism,and extremism in the FSU.
UCSJ has also joined with other U.S. organizations concerned with international religious freedom to form an informal mutual alliance. This alliance lobbies the U.S. Congress, State Department, and the President for help in defending religious freedom around the world. The alliance also jointly petitions offending countries to cease their wrongful activities.
