Protesting, as some Montgomery residents learned Friday night, is not just for the young.
Nearly 60 people crammed into a hall at the Montgomery’s Unitarian Universalist Fellowship on Friday night as group of immigration advocates, dubbed Grannies Respond, from Connecticut, New York and Georgia stopped in the city on their journey to the Texas-Mexico border. Several speakers rallied the crowd during dinner that was part local political rally and part pep rally.
“Welcome. This is a house of worship for all people,” said Rev. Lynn Hopkins, pastor at Unitarian Universalist Fellowship. “And so it is one of our fundamental principles that we affirm and promote the inherent worth and dignity of every single human being.”
