Faith In Action

Our Faith in Action Team believes in the work of Moses, as it continues to work for social justice in Dane County. 

MOSES (Madison Organizing in Strength, Equality and Solidarity) is a non-partisan interfaith organization that takes action  to promote social justice . The current focus is on ending mass incarceration.  
Tax-deductible donations in any amount are welcome. Five dollars or more by November 2 will place your name on the “Friends” page of the yearly magazine.
Go to:www.mosesmadison.org. Or mail checks to MOSES, PO box 7031, Madison, WI 53707.
Questions? Contact Ralph Jackson.
 
Interested in sharing your support and compassion for immigrants being held in Wisconsin detention centers? There is no commitment, just offering opportunity to join us as we prepare to go through a very short training. We need 2 more persons. Our goal is to visit a center sometime in January.

Immigration Updates

October 5th was the last day that 154,000 DACA recipients could renew their status. Unfortunately, because of the short window they were given after the termination of DACA was announced on September 5, close to 40,000 DACA recipients did not renew.  This means that 40,000 Dreamers will lose their DACA status and become undocumented and subject to immediate deportation unless Congress passes the Dream Act. 

……………

Opportunities to make a difference in the lives of our undocumented brothers and sister  coming soon.

………………………………

Once again this year UCC congregations will join the School of Americas Watch, immigrants’ rights groups and interfaith partners to demand justice to address root causes of migration, justice at the border and justice for immigrants. If interested there is a special UCC pre-Convergence immersion experience on Nov. 8/9 and then the possibility to stay for the SOA Watch Border Convergence November 10-12. Can’t go? Send a cross to be placed at the border. 

Check UCC website for more information.

On Halloween Give Treats of Fair-Trade Chocolate

 For children in cocoa-growing countries in Africa, chocolate often means child labor and family poverty. Equal Exchange, our partner in the UCC Fair Trade Project, participates in a fair-trade program to help end the problems of child labor, poverty, and environmental destruction in the African cocoa industry. Buy fair-trade chocolate mini-bars to give on Halloween.
