Support the Safe Communities Act with the MIRA Coalition

Help the Safe Communities Coalition mobilize for a statewide Call-In Day for Safe Communities on January 31st!

The Safe Communities Act protects the civil rights, safety and wellbeing of all residents by drawing a clear line between immigration enforcement and public safety. Sponsored by Sen. Jamie Eldridge (S.1305) and State Rep. Juana Matías (H.3269), it ensures that our tax dollars are not used to help the Trump administration deport immigrant families or create a Muslim registry. Learn more here.

Help the Safe Communities Coalition mobilize for a statewide Call-In Day for Safe Communities on January 31! We'll be calling our legislators to tell them we want the Safe Communities Act to be referred out of committee by the February 7 referral out deadline. We need to bring the phone lines down on January 31. 

Here's how to get involved: join our Phone to Action network and receive Action Alerts via text. Once you sign up, your response the to the text will send an automatic email or generate a call to your own state legislators.

Get informed and receive action alerts by signing up for the MIRA bulletin here.

UUMass Action's oston Accompaniment Network

The Greater Boston Cluster is a group of congregations and organizations working together to support immigrants and their families. We partner with community organizations to support their members’ needs for accompaniment. Accompaniment can include going with someone to court, or attending a vigil. It also includes support such as making advocacy calls, writing a letter, providing a ride or supporting a family whose loved one is in detention.

Why Accompaniment?

  • Provides comfort, solidarity, and connection

  • Witness for fair treatment

  • Demonstrates community support

Visiting Detention Centers with the Jewish Community Relations Council

At the invitation of Jobs with Justice, a small group of clergy are organizing other clergy to visits folks in immigration detention at South Bay House of Corrections for pastoral visits and to assess what family and legal support might be of use.

If you have daytime weekday availability and energy for this emergent, messy, compassionate work, please follow up with Elizabeth Nguyen at enguyen@uua.org!
