Martin Sheen hoists the Peace Candle

UCC Simi Valley, where I am a member, has offered sanctuary to a woman facing deportation to Mexico, but whose husband and children are American Citizens. Prior to coming to UCC Simi, she entered sanctuary in Long Beach. This was one year ago, and the organizations that have been protesting in front of our Church and the Church in Long Beach called for a "rally" today during our service. Martin Sheen, Delores Huerta (cofounder of United Farmworkers with Cesar Chavez), Arturo Rodriquez (Current President of The United Farmworkers) and Aztec dancers joined us inside for our service
