Working For Justice and Peace in Ireland
The Irish American Unity Conference is a nationwide, nonpartisan, nonsectarian, chapter-based human rights organization working for justice and peace in Ireland. We are an American 501c(4) organization which advocates the end of British colonial occupation and the peaceful reunification of Ireland. We endeavor to achieve these goals by working through the American democratic process. Individually, our members represent every occupational and educational stratum in the United States. Membership is open to anyone who shares our views. CLICK HERE TO JOIN THE IAUC!
We work to educate the American public in general and decision makers in particular about human and civil rights abuses in Northern Ireland. We sponsor forums, seminars, video presentations and nationwide speaking tours by internationally recognized individuals. We disseminate information and foster involvement in the political process via the Internet. We sponsor trips by Members of Congress to Ireland to investigate first-hand the causes of injustice there. Through coordination with our National Board, our members advocate for and participate in congressional hearings on important human and civil rights issues. We assess and analyze printed news reports on Ireland and encourage activists to challenge inaccurate and biased reporting.
Mission Statement of the Irish American Unity Conference

The mission of the Irish American Unity Conference is to bring all Irish, Irish Americans and others together on the basis of their common belief in Justice and Peace in a reunited Ireland. We acknowledge and accede to the right of all the Irish people to self-determination and are fully confident that given the opportunity, they will choose to live, respectful of the human and civil rights of all, in a sovereign and independent nation free of domination by Britain.
