Secure Communities is a deportation program dependent upon partnership among federal, state and local law enforcement agencies. Originally presented as a system for removing serious criminal offenders without documentation from the country, it has become a means of removing undocumented residents in general, placing tremendous stress on immigrant families. Some municipalities and faith groups are organizing to resist participation. Join in a conversation with Rev. Craig Roshaven, the Witness Ministries Director at the UUA, about how Unitarian Universalist congregations can become part of the effort among local governments to opt-out of Secure Communities.

The host of *The Journey Toward Phoenix* is Rev. Carlton Elliott Smith, one of three ministers serving the Unitarian Universalist Church of Arlington, Virginia. He is a member of both the Resources "Brain Trust" and the Program Development Group for Justice GA 2012.

*The Journey Toward Phoenix* is a weekly radio blog intended to inform, entertain and inspire those who are attending or may attend Justice GA 2012, and to create a national dialogue about what Unitarian Universalists are doing in their local communities relative to the UUA theme of "Immigration as a Moral Issue".
