  3. Southwest Pctures (in co-operation with the Southwest Conference United Church of Christ) is in the process of documenting all faith based efforts regarding the human rights struggle on film for release later in 2010.

    We would love to hear your individual stories about your participation in the events here in Arizona and elsewhere.

    Thank You for your service to the cause of humanity

  4. Sondra Mort says:

    It was a joy meeting as many of these fine people as I did! Thank you for advocating for me to get my medicines! I believe that without your help and support I would have been going through withdrawals either in the cell with everyone, or more likely, in a cell all by myself!

    Y’all have inspired me and I will stand with you because I too believe in equality for everyone and am so impressed with the capacity for love I witnessed!

    Blessings and love to each of you!

  5. Trent Tripp says:

    As a UU from West Valley Unitarian Universalist Church in Glendale AZ who also spent Thursday night in jail after Standing on the Side of Love in an intersection outside the Wells Fargo Building in downtown Phoenix, I would like to thank everybody for your support and vigil. It was a great joy to hear the crowd cheer as my fellow demonstrators and I were slowly released from Sheriff Joe’s jail on Friday afternoon. After over 26 hours in this stark, cold, hostile environment, the cheers and love coming from that crowd waiting outside were just the thing to rekindle my spirit. Thank you, Trent Tripp

  6. Kat Sinclair says:

    Blessings to all my fellow people of faith, including you, too, Sondra, who stood, sat, and sang with me!

  7. Please add Trent Tripp’s name to the list of those arrested.
    Thank you.

    Hi Sondra,

    I was so heartened to see you in the hallway while I was still in jail—you looked so much better! I am also very touched that you sent the thank you along. I hope that your recovery continues to go well- someone who would go to the trouble to send a thank you to a relative stranger is a winner in my book.

    We’ve added both Sondra Mort and Trent Tripp to the list, with apologies for the oversight and sincerest gratitude for your witness. Thank you both!

    (If any other Unitarian Universalists were arrested for civil disobedience on Thursday, July 29th, who are not on this list, please let us know.)
