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
Make A Holiday Card, A Gift of Hope for Migrant Detainees
Thousands of asylum seekers are held in three detention centers in Arizona. On December 3, after service, we invite you to make holiday cards for them in the sanctuary. All materials will be provided, as officials have rules about what can come into the detention centers. Your card will likely be the only gift from outside that the person receives this season, and will likely be displayed and shared among those inside.
Humanitarian Aid to Gaza and/or Israel
As recommended in last Sunday’s service, you can help support those most affected in the ongoing situation by donating to Doctors Without Borders in Gaza and/or to the Center for Jewish Philanthropy of Greater Phoenix.
Collect Petition Signatures from Family and Friends
Every signature counts! Sign up for training and collect signatures on the non-partisan abortion access petitions from your like-minded network of family and friends. No need to approach strangers or knock on doors. Even one or two signatures will make a difference. Get more information, and if you have questions, email us.
