On June 18, 2017, ORUCC voted to become a sanctuary congregation. At that time we made a commitment to engage in support, advocacy and service to our undocumented brothers and sisters.
At the core of this commitment is our offering of safe sanctuary to an individual or family who may be facing deportation. Until we host a guest we won’t have all of the details of what will be needed. What we do know however is that we will need a core base of volunteers to carry out the logistics of supporting that individual or family.
We are also a founding member of the Dane Sanctuary Coalition – an interfaith effort to create as many sanctuary sites as possible in Dane County. Members of our Sanctuary Mission Team serve on the Steering Committee and other work teams of the larger coalition.
This site will list events sponsored by both the Dane Sanctuary Coalition and our congregation.
WE ENCOURAGE YOU TO FILL OUT THE VOLUNTEER SURVEY (see link above). This will give us contact information for upcoming trainings and advocacy efforts.
