We’re looking forward to seeing each and every one of you at our quarterly gathering on December 5th.
We hope this time together can bring greater closeness, community, and understanding as we roll up our sleeves and begin to do the necessary work for immigrant justice in 2020.
The Mid-Willamette quarterly gathering will be held from 6:30 - 8:30p at Salem Mennonite Church 1045 Candlewood Dr. NE Keizer, OR 97303. During the gathering we’ll:
Celebrate the Chief Justice of Oregon joining our Circle of Protection by issuing an emergency rule prohibiting ICE arrests in courthouses.
Test out a new resource for discerning how and when to engage around “flashpoints” (often unpredictable moments when violence and injustice flare up in the media and public consciousness).
Look ahead to 2020, exploring how we can put our faith into action around the federal policy relating to asylum-seekers and how we can counter white nationalism in the upcoming election year.
Continue to build our interfaith community during this holiday season.
We hope to see you on Wednesday December 5th.
Alaide, Ron & Sarah

We also invite you to consider joining us at a Quarterly Gathering in another region of the state to connect with IMIrJ leaders in other areas and share learnings/stories.
