At Cedar Lane, we are committed to building the Beloved Community by striving to have our congregation fully include people of all ages, physical abilities, races, gender identities, sexual orientations, national origins, spiritual beliefs, and economic circumstances. We see worship and lifespan religious education as both a rehearsal for and manifestation of the beloved community as envisioned by the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
In May, the Unitarian Universalists for Social Justice (UUSJ) Advocacy Corps visited a number of Congressional offices to encourage signatures on a letter to House Speaker Paul Ryan of Wisconsin. The issue was protecting Dreamers (undocumented immigrants who were brought to the United States as children). Known as DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) recipients, these young people have grown up in this country and have illegal status through no fault of their own.
