October 2018 Immigration Meetings
The PACG Civil Rights Forum is working on its own and also in coalition with other community organizations on Immigration. Consider coming to one of these upcoming meetings on Immigration issues:
What You Can Do Now - Help Form a Community Sanctuary Coalition
The Unitarian Universalist Congregation of the Quad Cities (UUCQC) voted May 20 to be a Sanctuary church. The story was covered in the Quad City Times and there was local television coverage, including from WQAD.
The church would house immigrants facing a final notice of deportation for as long as it takes to get their appeal heard. This keeps families together as potential deportees would not be locked up in detention centers. Very detailed information about the Sanctuary Project is available at the UUCQC website.
The PACG Civil Rights Forum calls upon PACG members and other churches and community groups to step up and help form a community Sanctuary coalition to support and expand these efforts. Attend the weekly Sanctuary Task Force meeting on Tuesdays at 6:45 pm at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of the Quad Cities, 3707 Eastern Ave, Davenport to offer your support.
