NO WALL: NO EMERGENCY
Donald Trump has declared a national emergency to fund his racist, xenophobic, and unpopular wall on the US-Mexico border. We know Trump is making up this emergency to get his way despite the refusal by Congress to authorize the wall. And we refuse to stand for it.
Join your fellow Delawareans to say NO to the emergency, NO to the wall, and YES to dignity and respect for all immigrants

A Message from UUDAN — the Unitarian Universalist Advocacy Network
Unitarian Universalists are urged to join Governor John Carney for a series of community town halls with members of the General Assembly – both Democrats and Republicans – being held across the state.
The governor will join local legislators to discuss his priorities as outlined in his State of the State address, the Fiscal Year 2020 budget proposal, and to listen to ideas from members of the public.
UUs all over the country are getting more involved in local legislative actions and so should we! To become more active in the legislative process, we need to inform ourselves about the issues and advocate for progressive change from our grounding and values in a liberal religious faith.
Call your UU friends and go together to your town hall meeting. Here’s the complete schedule of Town Hall Meetings. The meeting closest to the church is at the Talleyville Fire Hall on Thursday, March 7, at 7:00 p.m.
6:00 p.m. – February 5 – Rt. 9 Library & Innovation Center, New Castle, with Senator Darius Brown, Representative Franklin Cooke, Representative Kendra Johnson, and Representative Melissa Minor-Brown.

The Untold Story of Latinos in America
Join us for a movie & discussion!
This gripping documentary reveals the political and social roots that have
driven millions to migrate from Latin America to the United States.
Negative publicity pervades the public discourse about the families and children crossing our Southern border. They come here seeking asylum because they must flee extreme violence and instability in their own communities. Come learn about and discuss the long history of our policies and involvement in these countries. Popcorn and baked goods will be for sale.
