Sanctuary Effort In Tempe

Luis Lopez-Acabal, with the support of his wife, children, and community, will be living in the University Presbyterian Church, In Tempe as they shield him from immigration authorities, hoping that they will be able to do so until Obama passes an executive order for which he will qualify.

“Our religious traditions have called us since ancient times to provide sanctuary and advocacy for those who are being oppressed. I encourage all people of faith to sign this

petition to keep our sibling Luis with his wife and children. Let there be not one more family torn apart by our broken immigration system,” Rev. Andy Burnette, Valley UU Congregation
