Global Ministries 

The United Church of Christ (UCC) continues to be involved at the United Nations through their Global Ministries presence, maintaining a strong link to the U.N. since its initiation in 1945 through liaison staff based in New York, Washington, and Cleveland. UCC representatives attended the 1985 UN Decade for Women Conference in Nairobi, and all the UN Conferences in the 1990’s (in particular the 1995 Fourth UN Conference on ratification of the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women). Working at NGO status with other NGOs, global women’s advocacy groups, and the interfaith community, the UCC provides leadership for its members to support efforts to establish justice and equality for women in all parts of the world.
