We are secular activists, university students, and stewards of a shared world. We fight for social justice and equity for all. As volunteers, we work to dismantle stigmas, to foster understanding through service, and promote cross-cultural communication and understanding.
Why We Care
A more peaceful world is dependent on our initiative to create cross-cultural understanding and demonstrate compassion through meaningful service.
The rise in propaganda against Muslims and the Muslim world is perpetuating a cycle of violence. The same tool of propaganda that is used by extremists against the Western World. It manifests in the form of racist microaggressions, hate crimes, executive-ordered travel bans, or all out warfare. Xenophobia, racism, war — none of this is new. But our movement is — we are here and we’re not going to sit idly by, as social justice and equity can be achieved through compassion.
Since 2009, AUA has been fighting hate and ignorance with respect, understanding, and love. un-Ambassasors build bridges across cultures, foster respect and understanding of marginalized populations in our communities and around the world, and we will make the world a better place through intentional cross-cultural community building.
It Starts with You
We will build bridges across cultures, we will foster respect and understanding of marginalized populations in our communities and around the world, and we will make the world a better place through intentional international travel and cross-cultural community building.
We must be the change we seek to see in the world. Learn more about becoming an unofficial ambassador and mobilizing the movement in and beyond your community. We’ll be with you every step of the way. Let’s make our world a better place, and let’s not wait. The time to act is now.
