“Orange is the New Black”

By sitting with the oppressed, we can offer solidarity and solace to those who are suffering the most. One way our UU community is practicing this is by visiting immigrants in detention at Mesa Verde Detention Facility in Bakersfield. Jeannie Parent will speak about the work of KWESI, Kern Welcoming and Extending Solidarity to Immigrants, and discuss the current situation so many immigrants in our community face, including isolation in detention, family separation, and potential deportation.
