October 16 Service: Dreaming of a New Chance

The Interfaith Coalition for Immigration Reform, of which the UUA is a member, has asked congregations of many faiths to lift up the DREAM Act.  This bill, whose full name is the “Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors Act”, would provide a path to citizenship for undocumented young adults brought to the United States as children and who complete two years of college or military service. This Sunday we will explore what the bill proposes and take a look into the lives of some young people whose futures will be determined by the outcome of the vote on this bill. What is our countries responsibility to these young people? This will be one of several services this year on the topic of immigration, which is a challenging topic for many Unitarian Universalists, as we prepare for the UUA’s “Justice General Assembly” in Phoenix in June 2012.
