Key Presentations Include
Sanctuary, Solidarity & Resistance – Immigrant Justice under a new administration
Join Katia Hansen, President & CEO of UU Refugee and Immigrant Services & Education (UURISE) for a conversation on the current state of immigration laws, policies and enforcement under the new administration. We will discuss what UUs and other immigrant justice activists are doing in solidarity and resistance, and how we can work together to deepen and strengthen our partnerships, strategies and congregational responses.
Issues Breakout & Networking
Join other UUs in the area to discuss issues such as economic justice, racial justice, environmental justice, and immigrant justice. These small group breakouts are determined based on interest the day of the event and include opportunities for justice-makers to share what they are working on in their congregations and receive updates from the Action Teams of the UU Justice Ministry.
Evan Junker, UUJMCA Executive Director, will explain the current status of important legislation being considered in the Capitol this biennium and give an overview of what we can expect next year. He will also cover the relatively new LoveResists campaign, a collaboration between the UUA, UUSC and the UU College of Social Justice, with state action networks (including UUJMCA) working in partnership to implement powerful opportunities for engagement. Discover how your congregation can participate in these efforts and leave with a calendar of upcoming events.
Please bring a bag lunch. Coffee, tea, water and morning snacks will be available.
