With Appreciation and Hope 

June 12, 2018

Plymouth offers many ways to make our voices heard as people of faith – The Poor People’s Campaign weekly rallies, health care petitions, gun control, Pride parade. We can’t all be everywhere and do everything all the time, but each of us can do something: One vine, many branches. Thank you for who we are together, Plymouth!

At Sunday’s Congregational Conversation, someone requested political action by the church and individuals, against separation of children and parents seeking asylum at our borders. I participated in Saturday’s demonstration at the Federal Prison in Sea-Tac. NWIRP (Northwest Immigrant Rights Project) offered the opportunity to write letters to two local people, asking them to release the 200+ parents being held there and reunite them with their children immediately while their asylum cases are being processed. This is a small, local step we can each take that could make an national impact. Please join me; take five minutes and write to these people on behalf of immigrant families. Five minutes and two stamps may make a huge difference in someone's life, crazy as that sounds!
