The Civic Engagement group meets regularly to bring timely justice actions to each Sunday worship service. We pick important issues for letters, postcards, petitions, and phone calls. In addition, we network with other justice and faith groups in Phoenix and beyond.
Recent Civic Action News
Support the Heat Relief Network
Four people have already died from the heat this year in Maricopa County, and many more are in danger as the temperatures continue to rise. The 2023 Heat Relief Network offers hydration, cooling, and heat relief respite centers throughout the valley. See where you can bring donations of water, or donate money to the cause. For more information watch this video created by the AFN Cooling Centers and Resilience Hub Initiative.
End of Title 42 – How You Can Help
Title 42 officially ended on May 11, 2023. This was a long overdue and a welcome development, but was combined with a number of new border restrictions limiting people’s ability to claim asylum in the United States. The International Rescue Committee continues to help immigrants navigate the asylum process before and after they get to the border.
