Interactive Zoom event facilitated by members of the UUC Immigrant Justice and Racial Justice Teams

UUC’s Racial Justice and Immigrant Justice Teams are launching a series of opportunities for UUC members and friends to learn, and be in conversation, about public safety from a community-centered perspective. You are invited to join this first workshop, focused on imagining an end to immigration detention and deportation. This interactive workshop, featuring the work of artists and activists, will connect the movement to close privately-run immigration detention centers (including the one in Tacoma) with calls to divest from police funding, priorities identified by local immigrant-led and Black-led organizations. Participants will have opportunities to share what is important to you as a Unitarian Universalist. 

This workshop will be similar to the community action circles held by the Immigrant Justice and Racial Justice teams last spring, a design originally from the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee (UUSC) and the UU College of Social Justice. Participants will join via Zoom, be actively engaged throughout, and stay for the entire time. We will be doing active sharing and community-building, and take away opportunities to act.  

Registration details:

  • This workshop can accommodate a maximum of 16 people so that there is room for active sharing.
  • Each participant must register and should have a computer or tablet to fully participate in breakout room discussions.
  • Plan to be engaged and focused — This is not one of those Zoom events where you can sit back and just listen, or multi-task. You will be actively engaging with the facilitators and other participants.

Zoom details will be provided once your registration is confirmed. Click here to register.
