In order to live our faith into action in a humane and faithful response to help people in need on both sides of our border we are sharing several different ways you can plug in with our community partners to help make a difference in the lives of people. There are multiple opportunities to fit a wide range of involvement both here in San Diego and also with two organizations in Tijuana. Whether you can volunteer time or donate, your help can make a big difference. Thank you for living out our mission and helping to make San Diego a more just, fair and equitable region.
In April we bagged 9,800 lbs. of carrots that went out to those in need the very next day. Thanks all! Want to help out? You are heartily invited to join us every 1st Thursday each month. To get started, email Sara Ohara at firstname.lastname@example.org. Pre-registration with our group code is required. Hope to see you there!

202 C street (12th Floor) San Diego, CA 92101
As you may already know, Councilmember Georgette Gómez has introduced a resolution in opposition to Executive Order 13767, to build a wall along the United States border with Mexico and U.S. House of Representatives Bill H.R. 1813 Titled Border Wall Funding Act of 2017. Councilmember Gómez believes that San Diego is a city that benefits economically and culturally from the binational bond we have with Mexico and the contributions of immigrants. It is incumbent on us to protect such bonds by resisting moves to further divide us. We are asking for your public support on this resolution. Please join us at the San Diego City Councilwww.uusandiego.org/blog/get-your-standing-on-the-side-of-love-t-shirt meeting where the resolution will be discussed for full council consideration. This is a great opportunity to wear your Standing on the Side of Love t-shirts!

Stand For Sanctuary and Immigrant Rights Rally
Tuesday, January 31 at 12 p.m. at Senator Dianne Feinstein's office 880 Front St. San Diego, CA 92101
We will gather at city halls and mayors' offices to demand that our cities and towns protect immigrants by declaring themselves "sanctuary cities" and refusing to comply with executive orders that hurt our families and communities. Please join fellow MoveOn members and allies and attend these rallies. We are gathering to #StandIndivisible at the office of Senator Harris and Senator Feinstein to show them that we want them to lead the way in fighting for what is right.
