Immigration Justice

The Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) has made a commitment on a national level to support undocumented and other immigrants. Members of UUCA have begun to take initiative in this area, working with local community partners to advocate for the undocumented community here in Western NC.

On October 29, 2017, our congregation voted to provide physical sanctuary (or a safe living space) for a person or persons at risk of immediate deportation. The Sanctuary Steering committee, comprised of members from UUCA, Temple Beth Ha’Tephila, and Land of Sky Ministries continue to work within the larger WNC Sanctuary movement to educate ourselves about the logistics, resources, and risks involved with this work.
