UUSC Guest at Your Table

Through the Guest At Your Table program you can support more than 75 UUSC grassroots programs on the front lines of social justice. One of those programs is the Queer Detainee Empowerment Project (QDEP). QDEP helped Ali Dawodu gain asylum and start a new life in the US after he was attacked for being a gay man and his partner murdered in Nigeria. When he fled to the US he was charged with visa fraud and detained for more than 6 months on Rikers Island. QDEP was able to get him an asylum hearing and he was ultimately granted asylum status. He is now training to be a carpenter. The coins your family puts in the Guest At Your Table box will help UUSC bring justice to people like Ali during 2018.
