UUA Statement of Conscience: Immigration as a Moral Issue

In 2013, predicated on our core principle of “respect for the inherent worth and dignity of every person” the Unitarian Universalist General Assembly adopted a Statement of Conscience entitled “Immigration as Moral Issue.”  Read the Statement of Conscience.

Leading up to its adoption, congregations were encouraged to participate in study and action through a guide that included a six-week course, the links of which are listed below.


Six-Week Introductory Curriculum

You can download the entire six-week curriculum in a single pdf file (148 pages).

Or, you can view each week’s course:
Week One: Understanding the Causes of Migration
Week Two: The History of Immigration in the U.S.
Week Three: The Economics of (Im)migration
Week Four: Security, Enforcement and Human Rights
Week Five: Who Benefits from a Broken System
Week Six: Seeking Solutions

UU Service Committee Report on Honduras

NEW HONDURAS REPORT

Last May, UUSC partnered with SHARE-El Salvador and Sisters of Mercy to send a faith solidarity delegation to Honduras to accompany and hear directly from Hondurans facing political repression and violence following the fraudulent re-election of President Juan Orlando Hernández. This week, as news of the Honduran migrant caravan dominates the airwaves, we have released a new report sharing our findings, “The Struggle for Human Rights and Transformation in Honduras.” We are grateful to our partners in Honduras at Radio Progreso/ERIC and Foro de Mujeres Por la Vida.

Along with the report we have a few simple resources for social media that we invite you to share:
