Action Assembly for Immigration Justice

  • Cathedral Church of St. Paul - Sproat Hall 138 Tremont Street Boston, MA, 02111 United States (map)

RSVP here!

Please join us at our Action Assembly for Immigration Justice. We will give a brief overview and update of the immigration work being done across Eastern Mass, and spend most of our time in breakouts groups. The objective is for everyone to get plugged into a specific project. In a moment as chaotic as we are living, there is room for all tactics and all people to get involved. With our partner organizations UU Mass Action, ECM, and JCRC, we will host the following breakout groups:

Accompaniment network
Learn about how to offer support and accompaniment to people as they deal with immigration hearings, ICE check-ins, court cases, and other types of advocacy and action. The network is currently building out its structure and capacity.

Clergy visitation and legal support
We are looking to recruit clergy to visit immigrants in detention as well as lawyers who would be willing to offer pro-bono representation to detainees. If you are an attorney, but do not practice immigration law, we can match you up with an experienced immigration opportunity who can offer guidance.

Prayer vigils
Join a number of Boston-area congregations to organize prayer vigils at the ICE Detention Center at South Bay. At these vigils we gather to show our support and solidarity with those detained by ICE, and recommit ourselves to taking meaningful action justice.

Escalation
Many of us have discerned that this moment requires us to put more on the line for immigration justice. We are looking for people who are ready to escalate the resistance and engage in riskier actions.
