We are living in a time when communities face heightened harassment, criminalization, detention, and deportation. As the U.S. Immigration and Customs and Enforcement continues to target, detain, and deport migrant families and children, our faith calls us to act. At a time when we wait for a decision from the Supreme Court determining the possibility of justice for millions of migrants living in the United States, our faith calls us to act.
We must stand on the side of love as advocates for hospitality, compassion, and justice. UU congregations are taking action across the country, from collaboration with local migrant-led organizing to offering and providing Sanctuary.
We share an urgent message from Rev. Peter Morales, President of the UUA, calling on each of us-- as people of faith and conscience-- to take action for immigrant justice today. May we be emboldened to take courageous action for justice.
There are a number of ways you can get involved, today:
- Sign this Groundswell Petition and tell the Obama Administration to Stop the Raids on Central American Refugees
- Listen and/or read the Interfaith Immigration Coalition’s “Faith Response to ICE Raids of Central American Families” Webinar
- Learn more about congregations providing Sanctuary in your community
- Check out the UUA’s Immigrant Justice Page
In love & solidarity,
