Join the Immigrant Accompaniment Team from Wesley and St. Paul’s UMCs this Sunday at 12:30 pm in the Chapel. The team is being formed to support and partner with immigrant individuals/families, including:
a) personal support / pastoral care;
b) practical and financial support;
c) accompaniment to ICE meetings and court hearings so that no one stands alone;
d) helping families navigate through service providers:
e) help them tell their stories publicly for deportation defense and building our movement to stop mass deportation
This support is needed for individuals/families living in their own homes, staying in sanctuary/refuge congregations, and in ICE detention. We will talk about team roles and responsibilities and an action plan going forward. We will be working with PACT Organizer Jesus Ruiz.
