“Changing Systems, Changing Ourselves” is an interactive online course that provides an incredible learning opportunity for our congregation as we engage in justice work, sanctuary, accompaniment and resistance.
This program will focus on the immigration system and provide information and practical skills for faith communities working in immigration justice. The course is a joint project of the American Friends Service Committee, Church World Service, Freedom for Immigrants, the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee, and the Unitarian Universalist Association.
