Please join CCR and partners to stand with individuals and families facing deportation. Each day, dozens of New Yorkers facing deportation must check-in with ICE Officers at 26 Federal Plaza. When they enter the building, they don’t know if they will be able to see their families again. Now more than ever it is important to show solidarity in the face of policies that threaten our communities.
New York City families deserve dignity and respect. This interfaith act of solidarity will bring together advocates and supporters to show immigrants that they are not alone. We will begin a Jericho Walk at 9am, by circling the building in silence and thoughtful prayer.
Organizers are asking that attendees RSVP on Eventbrite, and you can visit the vigil’s Facebook event page for more information.
