Love Resists: Solidarity with All Those Migrating
As families and folks continue to migrate as they always have, we’ll share about some of the useful and faithful ways to provide support and solidarity to those in this current exodus and to build strong networks to support all those being criminalized for migrating. We’ll also hear up to date information from folks on the US/ Mexico border, on the political contexts that lead to migration, how the United States is illegally preventing folks from seeking asylum and how to discern the best role for how you can support given the various calls to action, volunteer and witness. Please join Love Reists and on-the-ground partners including Angela Fujii, Social Justice Cluster Coordinator in San Diego, Monica Cura from Activate Labs in Tijuana, Kristin Kumpf from the American Friends Service Committee, Victoria, an LGBTQ asylum seeker and Rebecca who is Victoria's sponsor for a conversation on creating networks to welcome those migrating when they get to their destinations all over the U.S and on how congregations can use their commitment to physical sanctuary to enact expanded sanctuary in their neighborhoods. By connecting with accompaniment networks and offering to sponsor and host asylum-seeking families and individuals, you will be making concrete, discernible change for the safety and wellness of members of our beloved community. This meeting was in English and with Spanish translation by Julica Hermann de la Fuente.
