In the first half hour, we will hear the stories of people who have had to negotiate the challenges of U.S. immigration policy to be with their loved ones, as well as those who have had to say goodbye as their partners were deported. What are some possible responses that Unitarian Universalists and their friends can have to these situations?

In the second half hour, we welcome Bruce Knotts, Executive Director of the Unitarian Universalist United Nations Office (UU-UNO), who will talk about some of the particular challenges faced by lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people in general, and by same-sex couples from different countries.

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".
