5/16 in #DC: Jericho Walk with @NewSanctuaryNYC

May 15, 2013

HartThe Jericho Walk is a walk of faith led by the New Sanctuary Faith Leaders, their congregants and their allies to highlight and bring attention to an immoral detention and deportation system. The present immigration policy is inhumane and unjust, with millions of people living in fear and hundreds of thousands deported.

This is a weekly vigil in New York City where we walk around the federal immigration building seven times, praying in silence for the right to remain with our families and communities.

On Thursday May 16 we will be in the Hart Senate Building in Washington, DC to pray, witness and to let them know that we are present as faith leaders, congregants, citizens and immigrants while the Judiciary Committee considers our fate. We will share and say a unity prayer during the walk to tear down the walls of injustice that separate us from a fair and humane immigration policy.

WHERE: Lutheran Church of the Reformation – 11:00am

: 212 East Capitol Street, Washington DC, 11:00 — gathering and logistics

: Hart Senate Building – 12:00 pm Jericho Walk

WHEN: Thursday May 16th 2013

JOIN US AS WE HEED THE CALL TO WELCOME THE STRANGER, TO PURSUE JUSTICE, AND TO EXPRESS OUR LOVE AND COMPASSION FOR ALL WHO LIVE AMONGST US.

If you cannot join us physically,

Pray with us as we walk from 12:00 – 1:30

GIVE US ALL THE RIGHT TO REMAIN IN JUSTICE AND IN TRUTH
