The Sunday Offering for May is Northwest Immigrant Rights Project which is a nationally recognized legal services organization founded in 1984. NWIRP was our offering Cause in February of 2018 and it is even more timely now.
NWIRP promotes justice by providing legal services, systemic advocacy and community education to undocumented immigrants and refugees. Funds are used to protect victims of trafficking and violence, advocate for immigrants in detention, fight against deportation, keep families together with family visas and help children attain legal status. This addresses directly our first two principles: affirming the inherent worth and dignity of every person; and working for justice, equity and compassion in human relations.
