- Unitarian Universalism Connection
Since May, the Cambridge Interfaith Sanctuary Coalition (CISC), made up of 10 congregations and communities across the faith spectrum, have committed to live out our faith/ethical values by accompanying a woman at risk of deportation. Hundreds of volunteers, rooted in shared values, have stood with this family against unjust laws, as they fight the threat of a deportation that would separate a woman from her two daughters. It is time to replenish our funds to support these two daughters – so they may continue to be together with their mother; we need to buy food, pay utilities and other necessary things. It is time to replenish our funds to support the family – to buy food, pay for utilities and other necessary things.
Additionally, we need funds to support two of our key leaders and organizers, Gaby Chavez and Nestor Pimienta, who have been working full-time as unpaid volunteers to support our work (as well as other coalitions of congregations in Eastern MA). Their work allows our congregations to walk the journey with our sanctuary family with respect and dignity, following the choices and the lead of the person(s) in sanctuary.
