for too long, immigrants have been oppressed and marginalized in the United States. with the struggling economy, a war, and numerous other divisive issues, it is possible (but unacceptable) that immigration reform gets pushed to the side and off washington’s agenda for a few years.

let’s take action and not let this happen by lifting our voices to God in prayer alongside with our brothers and sisters from various faith communities in Grand Rapids. this monday, the 16th, at 7pm,  there is a prayer vigil at La Nueva Esperanza, just down Burton from Calvin. we’re going to meet at 6:30 outside the common’s annex by the ATM to carpool from Calvin.


we have a lot of power by lifting our voices on behalf of immigrants. let’s use it!

“When foreigners reside among you in your land, do not mistreat them. The foreigners residing among you must be treated as your native-born. Love them as yourself, for you were foreigners in Egypt. I am the LORD your God.” – Leviticus 19:33-34

gracia y paz,
