Tom Benjamin and Michael Adcock might have a term for this new form of musical protest that some of us heard as we stood on the Gorman Road-I95 overpass on Friday. With signs hanging, imploring the Trump administration to stop separating immigrant families, we heard vehicles of all shapes and sizes–pickup trucks, delivery trucks, dump trucks, tow trucks, tractor-trailers, sedans, vans, SUV’s, convertibles–honk their horns–single beeps and long deep blasts– in a concert of solidarity.
You can demonstrate your solidarity on August 7 as UUCC partners with the Columbia Jewish Congregation and learn as the DC/MD/VA Sanctuary Congregation Network shares first hand experience working directly with impacted individuals and congregations. The training will teach us how to accompany immigrants to ICE hearings, set up a rapid response network, organize public campaigns to stop deportations.
Join us Tuesday evening, August 7, 2018. 7:30 p.m. at the Oakland Mills Interfaith Center, 5885 Robert Oliver Place, in the Oakland Mills Village Center, Columbia, MD. For more information you may contact Jim Caldiero, Tammy Spengler (Tammy424@me.com or 443 248-3437) of UUCC or Anna Rubin of the Columbia Jewish Congregation, email@example.com
