Defying the Nazis UU Action Project at All Souls UU Church, Colorado Springs, CO
Colorado Springs Says Welcome
Action Date(s): March 22, 2016 - 10:00 am to 11:06 am MDT
On March 22, 2016, Rev. Nori Rost and members of All Souls UU Church in Colorado Springs joined with 120 of their fellow residents at City Hall to rally in support of Syrian refugees. The action was organized in response to an anti-refugee resolution proposed by City Councilman Andres Pico. The members of All Souls UU and their multifaith allies did not want to stand by and see this happen without raising their voices in protest. In partnership with Former State Representative Dennis Apuan and others, Rev. Rost began by co-creating a “Colorado Springs Says Welcome” Facebook page in early March to start organizing the community on behalf of pro-refugee policies. This gathered momentum and led naturally to the March event.
