Join us on the last Monday of every month at 1 p.m. EDT for prayer and action in support of DACA and the broader immigrant community. 

During Immigration Mondays, we will learn how we can join the efforts of coalitions lead by DACAmented people, coalitions fighting for the rights of DACA recipients and the larger undocumented community. We will strategize around protecting the right to seek asylum. We will advocate for more humane detention and deportation practices that honor the God-given dignity of every person. We will advocate for the re-imagining of our immigration system and re-examining of police funding. The fight against systemic racism and over-policing will benefit all our communities, black and non-black, documented and undocumented. 

We will also hear from each other about your efforts to seek justice for our immigration community, both the celebrations and the struggles. We know there are people who will join this call across a wide range of experience in advocacy and seeking justice, and welcome all of you to provide your insights and ask questions as we continue to work for justice alongside our DACAmented and immigrant siblings. 

We will end each call in prayer for the Holy Spirit to continue to carry our work for justice.
