Atttn.: San Mateo ~ STOP THE SEPARATION OF FAMILIES, IMMIGRANT RAPID RESPONSE NEIGHBORHOOD CANVAS organized by Faith in Action

Organized by Faith in Action Bay Area.

The Immigrant Rapid Response hotline is up and running in the San Francisco Bay Area. We now have teams with hundreds of volunteers ready to converge whenever an ICE raid is taking place in our neighborhoods. The teams are trained to witness and record the event and ensure that the rights of immigrants are protected. Now, we need to make sure our neighbors in the immigrant community are aware of the hotline.

Help distribute the rapid response hotline information in UUSM’s own neighborhood. We will meet at UUSM on Saturday and spread out to canvass the neighborhood with posters and cards. For questions, email rapidresponse@faithinactionba.org. Please RSVP HERE.

MEET AT: Unitarian Universalists of San Mateo, 300 E. Santa Inez Avenue, San Mateo, CA 94401 @ 10 a.m. on Saturday, May 6th.

Apropos this effort: Lesson Fifteen: Practice Corporeal Politics. Power wants your body softening in your chair and your emotions dissipating on the screen.  Get outside. Put your body in unfamiliar places with unfamiliar people.  Make new friends and march with them.” Prof. Timothy Snyder, On Tyranny: Twenty Lessons from the Twentieth Century.

The quote and recommended reading suggestion are from me, not UUSM. Justice Action Mondays are, however, a good way to implement this lesson and something that can be implemented by any organization almost anywhere in the world.

Peace! Hope! Joy!

Love, Jamie
