In February, the UUFKC board decided to sign our congregations name to the Declaration of Conscience, committing to put Unitarian Universalist values into action to resist hate, fear and bigotry. “We will oppose any and all unjust government actions to deport, register, discriminate, or despoil. As people of conscience, we declare our commitment to translate our values into action as we stand on the side of love with the most vulnerable among us. We welcome and invite all to join in this commitment for justice.”
The following is from the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee:
Thank you for joining us in committing to speak out and take action in support of basic human rights. While we cannot predict what the future will bring, and we do not pretend to have all the answers, we can and will be ready for the struggle ahead of us. Information about our work together will be shared in the coming weeks, but there is more you can do right now:
Wondering what your options might be for effective congregational action in a heightened time of hostility and violence and possible deportations? Join us for the Solidarity and Sanctuary Webinar Series. In this series we will review a survey of strategies appropriate for congregations of many sizes and political contexts. Hear from grassroots leaders from communities at highest risk, and learn from inspiring examples of what some UU congregations are already doing and what resources the UUA, UUSC, the UU College of Social Justice and other groups have to offer!
You can watch a recording of our most recent webinar, Solidarity and Sanctuary: A Survey of Options for Action, and sign up for upcoming webinars from the College of Social Justice.
