As communities of faith mobilize around the Sanctuary Movement and consider how to protect and care for the vulnerable, the undocumented, detained immigrants and the families and loved ones of deported people, the Virginia Interfaith Center for Public Policy is training and organizing circles of protection in cities across Virginia.
In Charlottesville, Legal Aid Justice Center has been leading the way in creating a rapid response network for undocumented people. In addition, communities of faith and immigration advocates have been organizing and mobilizing around the following:
Establishing a hotline and Rapid Response support in partnership with LAJC and Sin Barreras
Immigrant Detention Watch and Visitation
Providing safe transportation and locations for vulnerable people (sanctuary)
VICPP is sending their Welcoming All Coordinator to meet with all of the different individuals and parties involved or interested, to give an overview of what is happening at the national and state level and how Charlottesville might organize circles of protection.
Join us in the Library of Westminster Presbyterian Church, Sunday March 19 at 7pm. with questions.
