4/21: UUA President to Speak in Albuquerque on Immigration as a Moral Issue
From First Unitarian: On Thursday, April 21, 2011 at 7:00 PM, the Rev. Peter Morales, President of the Unitarian Universalist Association, will visit Albuquerque to kick off a 14-month campaign of study and action on immigration policy and practices at First Unitarian, part of the denomination’s nationwide focus on immigration as a moral issue. The event is open to the public.
Rev. Morales will give a talk about "Immigration as a Moral Issue" at the First Unitarian Church, located at 3701 Carlisle Blvd. NE, in Albuquerque at 7:00 PM. There will be live music and a reception generously hosted by the Penguin Family.
“We are not engaged in a political struggle. The issue of immigration is not ultimately about public policy. This is a struggle for our nation’s soul,” Morales says.
The denomination is holding its annual General Assembly as a Social Justice assembly in Phoenix, AZ in June 2012, with the issue of immigration front and center. Several thousand are expected to attend.
