Tools for Sanctuary & Solidarity
Wondering what your options are for effective action in this time of heightened hate, fear, and deportations?
UUCSJ, UUSC, UUA, UURISE and Side With Love are partnering to offer a range of tools and series of online workshops to help equip congregations, State Action Networks, and community activists to address the many escalating threats to human rights unleashed by the new administration.
See below for resources on how to get started, how to become a sanctuary congregation, and how you can act in solidarity in other ways.
UUSC’s Congregational Accompaniment Project for Asylum Seekers (CAPAS) is an initiative to support communities of faith as they host and accompany migrants through the process of obtaining legal asylum. Learn more about this project over at UUSC’s webiste. You can find the CAPAS handbook here:
Love Resists is a joint campaign of the Unitarian Universalist Association and the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee that is activating people of faith and conscience to resist the criminalization of our neighbors and communities and create a safer, more just, welcoming, and sustainable world.
