From Service to Solidarity: Unitarian Universalist (UU) Society of Black Hawk County, Cedar Falls, IA supports local immigrant family: After the devastating 2008 Postville, IA workplace raids that led to the arrest and deportation of more than 300 workers, the UU Society of Black Hawk County in Cedar Falls, IA has entered in to an interfaith partnership with other congregations and organizations to provide support and community for affected families. Beginning with service to one Guatemalan family, the congregation is developing a lasting relationship with a local Mennonite church, immigrant rights groups, and the immigrant community. Read the full story to learn the background and ways the congregation began this transformational journey.
Supporting human rights for all people, especially those most vulnerable, is a core Unitarian Universalist value. The Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) has a long history of support for migrant workers, refugees, and other displaced peoples. "Immigration as a Moral Issue" is currently one of our congregational study/action issues.
