Rev. Karen Scrivo shares her personal testimony this Sunday. She writes, “My Grandma Rose and Grandpa Louie came to this country from southern Italy in the early 1900s with their parents. Their peasant families sought refuge from poverty, exploitation and violence and dreamed of a better life. Spending time near the Arizona-Mexican border earlier this year, I got a glimpse of the very different journey being experienced by those seeking refuge and sanctuary in our country today.”
Rev. Scrivo is a community minister affiliated with Paint Branch Unitarian Universalist Church, where she launched the Community Social Justice Project. She is a member of Prince George’s County’s Coalition for Community Empowerment and Police Accountability (CEPA). As a regular volunteer at Dress for Success-DC, Karen helps outfit area women in need of business attire.
