A couple thousand Unitarian Universalists gathered at the Gallivan Plaza in Salt Lake City late Friday afternoon for a rally with local religious leaders to protest Utah’s anti-immigrant legislation (SB 81) which takes effect on July 1.
The action was part of the new Standing on the Side of Love campaign. This social justice campaign is designed to invite partnerships beyond the UUA.
It was outgoing UUA President Rev. Bill Sinkford’s last public appearance.
Our current immigration system keeps families apart through a huge backlog in family-based immigration and the unjust detention and deportation of immigrant mothers, fathers, brothers, and sisters.
We call for national humane and just family-based immigration reform!
We call for an end to unjust raids and deportations!
We oppose Utah’s anti-immigrant legislation (SB81) that becomes law on July 1st!
