Why People of Faith Care About the California Values Act

If you missed the immigration information table between services on March 12, you can still learn about the UMC position on immigration and the California Values Act Senate Bill 54, sign up for a discussion group on these topics, or find sample letters from Faith in Action in support of passage of this important legislation: links are provided below. SB54 protects the safety and wellbeing of all Californians by ensuring that state and local resources are not used to fuel mass deportation, separate families, or divide Californians on the basis of race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, immigration status, or national or ethnic origins.
