We are standing on the side of love with the 31 Unitarian Universalist clergy and leaders who got arrested as part of the July 31 Pray for Relief actions in front of the White House to stop deportations.

While many of the people arrested echoed the sentiment that theirs was a small sacrifice compared to the daily struggles many immigrants face, we are grateful for their witness nonetheless!

Thank you to these brave souls.

    Thanks for your powerful witness! And thank you too to the other 35 UUs who came as supporters–driving shuttle buses, hauling water, keeping the energy going–and all who participated in the Faith Summmit for next steps on Friday, as well as the 15 UU households who offered home hospitality to the coalition, to the 4 Dreamer Moms who participated with us, to Universalist National Memorial Church for hosting an in-gathering for us with a wonderful meal and worship, the DC Sanctuaries performers and the Beacon House Youth Choir who were part of it, and UUs for Social Justice (UUSJ) of the Northern Capitol Region who did so much of the local organizing, and the dozens of UUs who witnessed at the action on Thursday and marched with the National Day Laborer Organizing Network’s Not One More Campaign on Saturday and rallied in front of the White House. As well as many many thanks to our interfaith partners and Casa de Maryland who were part of the 112 arrested and the hundreds of supporters of the action.
