People of faith and spirit will gather to say “enough is enough” to a system of separation for immigrants and their families. All are welcome for stories of resistance and organizing, food and music and opportunities to connect and support detainees and loved ones. Activities available for children; dress for outdoor weather.

The Immigration Ministry Team at Plymouth welcomes everyone to join its movement in raising voices that demand more holistic rights for immigrants throughout the month of May. The team joins communities of faith and spirit to demand that our policy moves to allow families to stay together without the fear of imminent deportation. End the funding and building of new family detention centers, cease the maintaining of a quota system for filling detention beds and enact alternatives to massive deportation of people who have not been convicted of serious criminal offenses. The team has worked on fostering its own voice in seeking a change through writing parts of Sunday services, coordinating a group to attend the Mother’s Day Vigil at the Detention Center on May 9 and creating an art display based on the detention center that will be displayed May 17 in the Lounge. Look for opportunities to join the team and its efforts in seeking a difference for our migrant brothers and sisters.
