Emily Cox commented on Share a Story! 2018-08-22 14:33:58 -04008/22/18 Thank you Church World Services, EnoRiverUUFellowship and the Judea Reform and CH UU folks who made this learning and bonding experience happen. I will never forget these first hand stories of oppressed, abandoned, threatened lives experienced in the face of poor immigration protection, bigotry, bureaucratic night mares and poverty. These immigrants and refugees were inspiring in their understanding of large-scale injustice (when we with white privilege in the U.S. are so secure and unaware). I appreciate their insight and willingness to ask U.S. citizens to hold elected officials and systems accountable to humane practices. We have to engage in civic discourse with our neighbors. One young man, Daniel (18) told the story of how his father lives in sanctuary status separately from his family for safety. Young Daniel was the one who requested that a VotingRights table should be included at this event. Guess who registered to vote LAST NIGHT with YouCanVote? Unforgettable.
Volunteers are working together and in the community. Our best stories come from the our volunteers and organizers...
Stories of citizens who thought they could never vote becoming registered voters.
Stories of people who thought they would be unable to vote because of lack of ID.
Stories of people being truly grateful for our information.
Stories of volunteers making new friends or encountering friends they haven't seen in years!
Stories of humor & joy from all the different people we encounter.
Stories of patience, kindness, and acceptance.
Please take a minute to tell us a story!
