Advancing Human Rights
The Refugee and Immigrant Action Group provides engagement opportunities for ERUUFians to build relationships with refugees and immigrants in our community, and to make our voices heard in support of these new neighbors. Involvement can be one-time or ongoing, and may include sharing a meal, helping with childcare or food at a class for immigrants, donating household items for new arrivals, or advocating on behalf of refugee and immigrant rights.
Group Description: The Pride+ Action Team is a group of LGBTQ+ people and allies committed to achieving full human rights and dignity for a traditionally marginalized minority.
Overarching Goals: The overall goal is for allies and LGBTQ ERUUFians to demonstrate that spiritual communities can be inclusive and welcoming. The Pride March is an excellent opportunity for this type of visibility, especially needed because of the high-profile presence of hatemongers who purport to be the voice of religion.
