The Social Justice Action Team is grateful and invigorated by the increased participation in our committee meetings and action. Many UUs feel a sense of urgency to affirm our values among political leaders and speak out against actions on federal, local and state levels that threaten democracy and individual rights.
We are exploring ways we can join forces with community groups that affirm similar values, such as Salem Resists, and also looking into forming Resistance Huddles. Our team is also taking part in discussions about UUCS offering sanctuary or space to undocumented immigrants threatened with deportation. Sanctuary will be one topic we plan to discuss during our Monday, March 13 Social Justice Discussion Group, from 6:30 to 8:30 pm in the Green Room of the RE wing at UUCS. Our next Social Justice Action Team regular meeting is March 19, 12:30 to 2 pm in the minister’s office. We meet the third Sunday of each month. Please join us.
