Take Action: Immigration
Join us to bear witness, pray and take action in response to the government's policy of separating immigrant parents from their children at the border.
UPDATE: While "an executive action has been signed that ends the administration's policy of separating migrant families crossing the U.S.-Mexico border," we will still hold this space for all those who continue to be affected by immigration and asylum policies and for those seeking justice and peace.
