Immigration Task Force News: UUSJ surveys immigration and refugee support efforts

To strengthen networking and share best practices, UUSJ’s Immigration Task Force launched a survey to gather information on immigration and refugee support activities among UU congregations. The survey asks for information on a wide array of services, advocacy and educational efforts. Results will be shared with those interested in immigrant and refugee justice. Responses are requested by January 2.

UUSJ Board members were asked to identify the most relevant person in their congregation to complete the survey, so if your congregation has not received it, please contact or 202-600-9132, to ask that it be re-sent. The results should reveal how UUs are linking up with other faith partners as well as other UU congregations on vigils, training and involvement in accompanying immigrants to ICE check-ins and immigration court, support for refugee and immigrant families, internal education about immigration history, and legal reform using UUA curriculum, common book reads (such as Undocumented by Aviva Chomsky), films and speakers.
