Wondering what your options might be for effective congregational action in this heightened time of hostility and violence and possible deportations?
UUSC, UUCSJ, UURISE and the UUA are partnering to offer a series of online workshops to help equip congregations, State Action Networks, and community activists to address the heightened fear, hostility, and possible increased deportation that has been unleashed by the election.
The next two webinars, led by the UU College of Social Justice and Katia Hansen, President and CEO of UU Refugee & Immigrant Services and Education (UURISE), will focus specifically on what it means to become a Sanctuary congregation and how to get there, one of the many ways to be in solidarity with those most at risk in this new political landscape.

The webinar series kicked off in January with a pair led by UUSC, which reviewed a range of strategies for solidarity appropriate for congregations of many sizes and political contexts. These webinars shared inspiring examples of what some UU congregations are already doing and what resources the UUA, UUSC, the UU College of Social Justice and other UU groups have to offer!
Thank you to the nearly 200 folks who joined us for these sessions. Recordings of and more resources connected with these two webinars will be posted to this page shortly!
