Begun in 2017, our Immigrant Justice Team is our newest social justice initiative.
*Detention center visits to undocumented immigrants (This program is coordinated through our partnership with First Friends of NY/NJ)
*Trainings for Know Your Rights
*Support for our sanctuary congregation and sponsorship program
*Advocacy for immigration reform
In June 2017, our congregation passed a resolution to become a sanctuary congregation. We are proud to continue the legacy begun by Rev. Waitstill and Martha Sharp who brought us the symbol of the chalice when rescuing refugees from Nazi persecution. We believe it is an essential act of our faith to be a sanctuary for all people.
Come join us on the journey!
