Immigrant Justice News: Protecting Our Communities—Jan 14th Actions Across the Nation
Dear ,

It’s time to stand up for our values and our communities and to draw a line in the sand. Last week UUA President Rev. Peter Morales issued a call to all clergy to prepare to provide sanctuary and to resist. A broad coalition that includes United We Dream, National Domestic Workers Alliance, Center for Community Change, FIRM, SEIU and others has come together to take coordinated action on Saturday, January 14th in support of undocumented immigrants, refugees, Muslims and all who have been targeted by the incoming Trump administration. The UUA is partnering with this effort.

Around the country, marches, rallies, and events will be held calling for the protection and defense of our communities. The voices of those most impacted will be centered with faith communities and local leaders and organizations joining in solidarity. In sanctuary cities we will be calling on elected officials to stand with us and to stay firm in their commitments and to expand sanctuary to include all who need it. And in cities and towns that are not yet sanctuaries we will be calling them to join the movement. We will also be supporting sanctuary congregations, schools, and community centers.

You can find an event near you here (and keep checking as events are being added daily).

You can also sign up to host an event and receive a toolkit and an invitation to organizing calls here.

If you need help connecting with the coalition in your community please contact me at and I will help you do that.

As part of building our community of resistance, please let us know what you are doing and post your actions on our new Show the Love map. We have resources for resistance there and will continue to update them. We welcome and need your suggestions, your stories, and your engagement. We also ask that you give generously to support the UUA to strengthen our movement now.

As we enter this holy season let us renew ourselves and prepare for the challenges we face ahead.

In faith and solidarity,
