Learn How to Become a Rapid Responder in the Neighborhood Where You Live or Work
Join UUC, and others from the Faith Community, to partner with the Washington Immigrant Solidarity Network. WAISN needs rapid responders to verify reports of ICE activity.
Two opportunities to attend a Rapid Response Training
Thursday, May 10, 6:30-8:30pm, at UUC
Wednesday, June 20, 7-9pm, at Temple Beth Am
Will you support our neighbors and friends in the event of an ICE raid or community emergency? UUC’s Immigrant Justice group invites you to join the Washington Immigrant Solidarity Network (WAISN) as a rapid responder. WAISN coordinates a state-wide Rapid Response hotline for reporting active immigration raids and ICE activity. When a call is received, text messages are sent to community volunteers in the vicinity who respond rapidly, going to the area and using their smart phone cameras to document the activity. With this training, you can join others from UUC to help when there are incidents in the U-District or on the UW campus — or, in the neighborhood where you live or work.
This training is focused on volunteers interested in being a part of our rapid response network. Consider your availability to respond in the event of an emergency need — although you aren’t committing to joining the Rapid Response network in your area, hopefully, most who attend will be ready to do so
