Putting Our Faith In Action
EDUCATION: Every Child NC continues to offer an opportunity for faith communities and others to host a free docu-series titled “All Together” that is focused on education equity. Help educate voters about the Leandro Plan and North Carolina’s obligation to meet student needs. Get details and a way to register here.
IMMIGRATION: “Creating a pathway to citizenship has never been more urgent. Just over a month ago, a federal court ruled that DACA is unlawful, compounding the uncertainty that immigrant youth have been forced to live with for years.” The National Immigration Law Center is asking people to sign this petition asking both NC senators to find a permanent solution for immigrant youth.
HOMELESSNESS: Winter Safe Shelter is a collaborative effort of Trinity United Methodist, Grace Covenant Presbyterian, Grace Episcopal, and Counterflow Asheville. They are seeking to serve and partner with our neighbors experiencing homelessness. The shelter is prioritizing intact families, BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color), and LGBTQ individuals. They currently have raised roughly half the budget needed to staff the shelter through the winter and are seeking donations from the community. You can find more information about the shelter as well as a place to donate here.
REPARATIONS: The Reparations Stakeholders Authority of Asheville has created the RSAA Reparations Fund. Here is information on how people can learn and support this effort organized by the Tzedek Social Justice Fund.
ELECTIONS: Common Cause NC is asking people to express their thanks to all the election workers and volunteers that came forward to administer the midterm elections. You can sign on here.
