Immigrant Justice

Movimento Interfe para la Justicia del Inmigrante

Dear PDX IMIrJ friends,

There are many opportunities this month to connect with neighbors, friends, colleagues and compañerxs for immigrant justice - including a No on 105 canvass at St. Andrew Catholic Church this Sunday (!) and our monthly gathering this coming Tuesday:

IMIrJ PDX Monthly Gathering
Tuesday, October 9th
6:30 - 8:30pm
St. Michael and All Angel's Episcopal

This month, we'll share stories from the 7-day Sheridan to NORCOR journey; get up-to-speed on two potential changes to immigration policy and the concrete steps we can take to minimize impact on immigrants and their families; and connect with leaders from other faith communities around our shared work. 

See you soon!
Sarah, Ron, Jimmy & Alyssa
