The administration recently released a devastating proposal that will adversely impact immigrants seeking residency in the United States. By expanding what it means to be a “public charge,” millions of immigrants could be penalized for accessing essential housing, health care, and anti-hunger programs.
NAVIGATING CONFLICTS ACROSS RACE AND ABOUT RACE
INCREASING THE CAPACITY OF WHITES TO PARTNER TO CREATE MEANINGFUL CHANGE
Come be part of our Colorado Regional Meeting community at the YMCA of the Rockies — Estes Park Center, October 19-21. The Colorado Regional Meeting registration form is available on the back table in the Meetinghouse and at imym.org (under news). Forms should be postmarked no later than September 15.
Members of the Capital Campaign team have been listening hard to voices in our community. What we have heard is that most people would like to have a sabbatical from discussion about the future of the Meeting House beyond what is needed to support the agreed-upon revitalization work on the exterior and interior of the building.I n the coming months, $50,000 needs to be raised from our community, which will be matched by $50,000. We are initiating a Quiet Campaign. We will not be burdening community members with training or visits, and we will not be making loud calls for pledges. We will rely on members of the community to step forward, now that we have come to a decision on what to do to improve our worship and community space. We have faith that this calm approach will be sufficient to meet our current goal, and we feel that this simple solution allows us to act in integrity with the current desires of the community, not to raise more money than we need at this time.
Get to know other members and attenders by coming out and/or volunteering:
So far we have raised $130,000 of our $250,000 goal!
Thank you so much to everyone who has already so generously made a gift to the Phase One Fund. Our friendly teams will be visiting as many meeting members and attendees as possible over the next few months, so we hope that if you get a phone call asking for a visit to discuss your dream for the meeting house, you will take them up on the opportunity.
