On May 16, 2008, the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Danbury (UUCD) voted, with 90% of the support of its voting members, to become the first congregation of any denomination in Connecticut to join the New Sanctuary Movement. The story of how this came about is one that may be instructive to other churches as they struggle with the difficult and divisive issue of immigration in America.
