As Congress takes up the work of including the 11 million among us who call the US home, but are yet to be fully included because of their immigration status, more than 1,100 people are deported – separated from their families and loved ones – each day. Now that a bi-partisan framework has been presented in Washington, it only makes sense to provide relief from the fearsome specter of deportation for those who would be included in the bill.

The UUA is participating in the National Day Laborer Organizing Network (NDLON) #Not One More Deportation campaign.  See http://www.notonemoredeportation.com/  to learn how your congregation can participate, from being part of a rolling fast around the country, to creating art for immigrant justice, and partnering in advocacy activities.
