The Davies community has chosen Immigrant Justice as a focus of its efforts and is a proud member of the Congregation Action Network, which provides “support and solidarity to neighbors, friends, and family who fear being detained, deported or profiled.”
Rev. Norm and lay leader Mariama Onwuchekwa returned from a border witness trip with first-hand accounts of the challenges facing those who cross the border and seek safety in the United States. (Read Rev. Norm’s coverage of the specific challenges facing transgender immigrants HERE.)
The congregation is steadily increasing its efforts. It’s exploring sponsorship of an asylum seeker, increasing its presence at protests and public witness opportunities, and gaining the training necessary to be visitors to those in area detention centers. Stay tuned!
