“How as people of faith could we not stand with immigrants? Isn’t that what religion is all about?”
On July 4th, the Boston Globe published a front page article exploring the role of religious groups in supporting immigrant workers. The article features the involvement of the UUA and Boston’s Arlington Street Church with the New Sanctuary movement. Our very own Susan Leslie of Congregational Advocacy is quoted! Read all about it in Churches Champion Immigrants’ Plight.
In addition, the UUA webpage is featuring a story about Massachusetts UU immigrant activists’ involvement in a statewide coalition. Check out Unitarian Universalists Join Welcoming Massachusettes Campaign Kick Off in Support of Immigrants.
Susan and I are collecting stories of how UUs all over the country have been involved in volunteering and advocating around immigration issues, so that we can share them with the greater UU community. Please contact Susan or I if you have a story to share!
