Immigration Week of National Action
Friday, November 20 was the one-year anniversary of President Obama’s announcement concerning Immigration Relief (DAPA, DACA extended). With the recent 5th Circuit decision to keep both programs blocked, it is imperative that we continue to demonstrate the urgent need for relief for millions of immigrant families.
November 15-21 was designated as the week of national action, and we strongly showed up to let our federal elected officials know that we are a moral voice for humane treatment of our immigrant brothers and sisters! However, there are still ways you can take action. UUSJ is still offering two ways for you to get involved:
- Write letters to your House members and Senators as a part of the UUSJ Immigration Steering Committee’s Immigration Letter-Writing Campaign calling on Congress to take action to address our immigration crisis. Read more.
- Call into a National Justice-Building Conference Calls on Refugee Justice to learn how you or your congregation can help Syrian refugees (December 3). Read more.
