Join the UUC’s Involvement in the Sanctuary Movement

Members from nine U-District congregations are working together as part of the state-wide effort to stand with immigrants. Over the past four months, the congregations have established a plan to offer sanctuary, temporary safe space and accompaniment at three churches, with opportunities for all nine congregations to provide volunteers. In partnership with the University of Washington’s Leadership Without Borders Program, we will also provide temporary safe space to students are targeted by hate.

Choose a volunteer role to fit your interests, skills and schedule. Options include:

  • Provide transportation to legal, medical and other appointments
  • Help individuals and families learn more about community resources & outline a plan that meets their needs
  • Help with shopping or food prep
  • Accompany individuals to immigration appointments in Tukwila

There are opportunities to volunteer evenings, weekends and during the day. Although some bilingual volunteers are needed, there are plenty of opportunities for those who only speak English.

Training is provided. Two training options available in mid-November:

  • Tuesday, November 14, 6-8 p.m.
  • Wednesday, November 15, 6-8 p.m.
