THE MARCH IS OVER...NOW WHAT?! On Friday, February 24th, from 6:30-8pm at 3226 E. 12th St, Kansas City, MO 64127we invite you to join us for a roundtable event. Many of us participated in The March in KC and some went to The March in DC. Let’s gather to share/reflect about those monumental gatherings and continue the movement with ideas of how to move forward in resistance. We will have representatives from local groups who are directly affected by Trump’s executive orders and those groups instrumental in organizing efforts of mobilization and action. Let’s support each other and think creatively about ways to stay engaged.
Cherith Brook Catholic Worker in partnership with Advocates for Immigrants Rights and Reconciliation (AIRR) is hosting a webinar on “How to Become a Sanctuary Community 101.” On Sunday, February 19 from 6-8pm at 3226 E. 12th St, Kansas City, MO 64127 all interested communities of faith, organizing groups, and allies are invited to join a conversation on creating sanctuary for immigrants and refugees in Kansas City. Our goal is to 1) Introduce the Sanctuary Movement 2) explore rolls various groups can play, and 3) build a network of support that fits our community’s situation and can be prepared to respond in crises.
The Webinar was originally recorded in January by the PC(USA) Synod of the Northeast in conjunction with Presbyterian Peace Fellowship. It consists of a panel of those with current and past experience in the Sanctuary Movement. Panelists include John Fife, Alison Harrington, Amy Beth Willis and Jim Rigby. There will be a follow up discussion after viewing the webinar.
We believe communities of faith who are willing to place the welcome for the stranger at the center of their faith and work must organize, brainstorm, network- unite with courage and creativity to offer radical welcome in a hostile world. Acting on faith contributes to hope. Come join us!
PLEASE RSVP to Cherith Brook CW at 816-241-8047 or firstname.lastname@example.org we want to make sure there is enough room.
Don’t neglect to open up your homes to guests, because by doing this some have been hosts to angels without knowing it. Remember prisoners as if you were in prison with them, and people who are mistreated as if you were in their place. -Hebrews 3:2-3
