June 30th will be a National Day of Action to End Family Separation & Detention with events at the White House and 650 Locations Around the Country. See Additional Resources to Protect Children and Families here and the latest RIM WRAP.
Because of the extreme URGENCY to encourage reunification and protection of children and families, WEEK OF COMPASSION HAS MADE AVAILABLE LIMITED “FAMILIES BELONG TOGETHER” EMERGENCY MINI-GRANTS for Disciples congregations and partners to ensure we have the strongest participation possible of Disciples around the U.S. in actions this Saturday! Funds are limited (and normally not more than $250 per request), and will be distributed through our Disciples Refugee & Immigration Ministries office. If you have creative ideas for ways such funds could assist a group from your congregation/area to *join an event, *rent a bus, *support transportation costs, *hold a prayer vigil, *support immigrant families and ally voices in other ways during this Saturday’s National Day of Action, please make your request to RIM HERE immediately !
