Owner, Erica Millbrooks is a professional clothing designer and creator of these handcrafted contemporary rag dolls that come in various skin shades, “to capture the essence of the global village,” she says. A Doll For Everyone is the company’s tag line. Read more about this Millbrooks and her special dolls and shop online at

Act Now! Defend the Dreamers!

Over the past three months UCC advocates have faithfully acted in solidarity with the young immigrants known as the “Dreamers.” We have marched, prayed and sent more than 6,000 messages to Congress. Your voices are making a difference! Members of Congress are standing up and taking notice. Now your voice is needed again to demand that Congress pass a clean Dream Act.  

The Dream Act (S.1615/H.R.3440) offers permanent protection and a pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants brought to the United States as children. Without it 800,000 young people, who had previously been protected under an Obama era executive action called DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals), will be at risk for deportation and separation from their families.

We have to keep up the pressure. Contact your member of Congress today and call on them to pass a clean Dream Act now!
