Unitarian Universalist Association Calls for The Abolition of ICE
KANSAS CITY, MO—With an overwhelming majority, delegates at the Unitarian Universalist Association's General Assembly adopted an Action of Immediate Witness calling for the abolition of ICE and the end of family separation and detention of asylum seekers. The resolution calls for the “Abolition of Immigration Customs Enforcement (ICE) and the implementation of a system that understands the causes for migration, provides a non-carceral solution while asylum seekers await a decision on their case, and has a fundamental commitment to keeping families together.”
The Unitarian Universalist Association is also amplifying the call of Mijente to #AbolishIce by joining Mijente’s Day of Action in San Diego on July 2.
