Actions for the Week
Support the Migrant Caravan
1. The New Sanctuary Coalition
The New Sanctuary Coalition (NSC) is issuing a 40-day National Call to Action in response to how the United States fired tear gas and rubber bullets on immigrants seeking asylum at the US/Mexico border.
Fill out this form to get involved with the Sanctuary Caravan and to receive more information.
2. American Friends Service Committee & Love Knows No Borders
For those who would like to go to the border:
On Dec. 10, more than 100 faith leaders from across the country will take part in an action at the U.S.-Mexico border in San Diego, California. We invite you to join us in taking action, which will be preceded by a training and interfaith service on Dec. 9. If you are a faith leader, please indicate that on this form.
Please plan to arrive in San Diego by noon on Dec. 9 to participate in these events. More details will be forthcoming.
For those wanting to organize locally:
The American Friends Service Committee is also offering support to find or organize a local action between December 10-18.
Join the American Friends Service Committee, faith leaders, and communities across the country for a week of action as we stand in solidarity with the migrant caravan and all who seek refuge in the U.S. Together, we are calling on the U.S. to end the detention and deportation of immigrants, respect the human right to migrate, and end the militarization of the border.
Our “Love Knows No Borders” week of action begins on Dec. 10, International Human Rights Day, and ends on Dec. 18, International Migrants’ Day.
Tell Congress to Stop Fueling the Conflict in Yemen
from Bread for the World
Yemen is facing the world’s worst humanitarian crisis. And half the country could face famine by the end of the year. Families are desperate for medicine to stop cholera from taking the lives of their loved ones. Aid workers are working tirelessly to get food to households who cannot afford to buy any for themselves.
The ongoing war in the country is at the root of the crisis in Yemen. Without urgent action to stop the conflict, Yemen could see the largest famine in a century. Let’s do something.
As people of faith, let’s call on our government to stop providing support that fuels the conflict, promote peace and economic recovery instead, and ensure a fully funded humanitarian response to the immediate nutrition needs of Yemeni civilians.
Add your name to our petition and together we will send a clear message to our leaders: the crisis in Yemen is unacceptable, and we must use every tool at our disposal to help stop the famine conditions.
