The steering committee will be meeting in the UUCC Chapel between Sunday services on: Feb. 25, Mar. 11 and Mar. 25. Join us.
To familiarize yourself with the issue, please read the file entitled Imm Rev 9.17(1).pdf. Also, you will find files that list immigration-related legislation pending in the MD General Assembly and the U.S. House of Representatives and the Senate. In the next couple weeks, you will have the opportunity to advocate for selected bills in General Assembly (e.g., visit, call, write or email your delegate or senator).
UUCC Congressional Advocacy Corps
Additionally, within UUCC, we are seeking members who will serve as a Congressional Advocacy Corps to research U.S. Senate and House bills, prepare fact sheets and suggested advocacy messages to legislators from UUCC members. The UUCC Congressional Advocacy Corps will work with the UU’s For Social Justice in the National Capital Region’s Advocacy Corps where possible. Interested individuals should send an email to email@example.com, subject Advocacy Corps or contact Jim Caldiero.
