Side with Love: Keep Families Together & #AbolishICE

The UUFA Sanctuary Movement Team invites your participation at the Arch at 10 a.m. on Saturday, June 30.  Activists are organizing a nationwide effort on June 30 to protest the policy of separating families at the US-Mexico border.
Hosted by Athens Immigrant Rights Coalition, Dignidad Inmigrante en Athens, Community Support for Families in Crisis Due to Deportation, U-Lead Athens, A4E. Please click here and here for more information.
At General Assembly, we witnessed our faith’s ability to vision a freer future as our General Assembly heard a proposed Action of Immediate Witness on ending family separation and abolishing ICE.
“…Unitarian Universalists are called urgently to prophetic witness and concrete action that would stop the incarceration and separation of asylum seekers and to call for the abolition of ICE. We are called to do this work in relationship with immigrant-led organizers, and to support and amplify their goals and their voices, through monetary donations and by showing up.” (draft text as of June 23, 2018)
