Every level of action matters to help keep our community together. Stopping deportations is something where you can see an immediate effect. People called their Senators and Representatives, and Arturo Garcias Hernandez, who was in Sanctuary at the First Unitarian Society of Denver, was reunited with his family. People did the same for Jeanette Vizguerra, who also took Sanctuary at the same place, and she was able to get a stay and go home to her family. Few congregations can offer physical sanctuary – but we at Two Rivers can. And we are so grateful to be able to help families, parents like Yesenia, Sandra, Arturo and Jeanette.
Stop Sandra from being deported!
¡Detenga a Sandra de ser deportada!
