Love Resists
Dear  Friend,
There is so much happening - both the violence of our world and how we are resisting with love. We know when things change quickly, we act with urgent indignation and sometimes lose track of how to listen to what the landscape of our communities need. And if we and our families are directly impacted by these policies, it’s so hard to figure out where to put our energy, how much to risk and even how to get through the day.

Join us this Sunday, March 4th at 8pm ET/5pm PT for a timely conversation we're calling Marching Forth: Our Immigration Justice Landscape.

Here at Love Resists we know some things to be true:

  • No matter what is happening at the Supreme Court, the 9th circuit court or Congress and the White House, our work is to strengthen our local connections, knit them strong, humbly listen to what is needed, and figure out how to say yes.
  • When things change quickly, it’s an opportunity to strengthen our own spiritual muscles to handle messiness, uncertainty, and change.
  • We have and can grow what we need to keep ourselves and each other safe - to expand the ways we create and share resources within our communities.

One of the interfaith anti-deportation accompaniment networks that Unitarian Universalists are part of uses these values which we are sharing in case they are of use to you:

  • We honor people's dignity and choices in a system that denies dignity and choice.
  • We expect messiness, confusion, and discomfort, and we also choose courage and trust.
  • We judge the system, not people.
  • We fight for one another as family, because we are.

We look the violence of the Supreme Court’s decision on indefinite detention of our immigrant family in the eye. We are grateful for the reprieve that allows our DACAmented community to continue to renew DACA status. We send love to those with TPS suing the administration for their rights. To Black immigrant organizers on the frontlines who affirm racial disparities within detention and deportation. And we know that people with DACA and TPS and all 11 million of our undocumented family, including folks in Sanctuary in faith communities, deserve dignity and protection.

Want to talk more? Please join us THIS SUNDAY, March 4th at 8pm ET/5pm PT to ask questions and learn more about the shifting immigration justice landscape. RSVP Here.
