Bellingham Unitarian Fellowship in Bellingham, WA
The Bellingham Unitarian Fellowship began working with Community to Community for Development in 2005 with a collaborative protest of the minute-man presence on our Northern border. In In 2012, by congregational resolution, they established a formal partnership with C2C. The partnership is still operating and is engaged with addressing a myriad of immigration issues including migrant farmworker rights, racial justice, food sovereignty, citizenship, law enforcement practices, detention and responding to ICE raids of their immigrant community.
