The Thirty-Second General Synod of the United Church of Christ calls upon the United Church of Christ to advocate for the Department of Homeland Security, the Department of Justice, and other applicable governmental departments and agencies to immediately end the practice of separating minor children from their parents, except for the rare cases when the parents pose a threat to their own children, and that minor children who already have been taken from their parents be quickly reunited with them.

This resolution was adopted in Milwaukee June 18, 2019. Materials will be available in Paxton Hall after the service Sunday to make it easier to contact administration and elected officials ro put an end to family separation.
