Join Our Faith Webinar! “Detention, Asylum, Family Separation & COVID-19”, Wed., June 3, 4 PM ET/1 PM PT
As people of faith, how will we respond to people dying in jails, prisons, and detention facilities, and being deported–especially during the COVID-19 pandemic?
Please join this webinar to find out what we can do as faith communities to prevent family separation and family detention, and to protect asylum seekers. We will also explore how racism and militarization infect both the criminal justice and immigration systems.
Please RSVP Here and a link for the webinar will be sent to you!
