Sanctuary and Immigration Team, 7 p.m. virtually May 11

Learn with our St. John’s UU Sanctuary and Immigration Team (SIT) about the region’s immigrants and refugees and how to support them. SIT meets on the second Wednesday of the month at 7 p.m. by Zoom. 

SIT has been meeting for five years and has assisted our immigrant neighbors in many important ways. We have sponsored asylees who have been  in sanctuary at the Clifton United Methodist Church (with whom we partner), have collected food,  clothing and other important items from our St. John’s members and friends, and have hosted our immigrant neighbor for an evening of good food and conversation, contributed financially to various immigrant needs.

Several members of St. John’s distribute food contributions through the Willows Project, with which we are associated. We are members of the Cincinnati Immigrant Dignity  Coalition, https://ijpccincinnati.org/immigrant-dignity-coalition/ and are involved with community organizations in our Cincinnati area, Butler County and Northern Kentucky. Join us to discover the many things that we do.

Visit us, come to observe, or find a niche for yourself.   Contact: Sarah Loar Seibert, SIT coordinator, at seibertcs@zoomtown.com
