EVENT: el Camino del Inmigrante
EVENT DATE: Aug 20, 2016
Everyday immigrants cross borders into our nation, and around the world. Their journeys represent a pilgrimage toward a better future for them and for generations to come, yet many of today’s immigrants are not coming by boat but from countries south of our border by bus, train and foot. They are hoping for safe passage into a country with opportunities impossible to imagine, providing us with their hard work and entrepreneurial spirits that drive our country’s growth forward.
I feel a very clear prompting from the Holy Spirit to walk in solidarity with our immigrant brothers and sisters that make the dangerous pilgrimage into our nation to seek a better life. In an effort to expose and experience the pain of our immigrant brothers and sisters’ journey into our country, I invite you to join me to plan and walk the Camino del Inmigrante (The Way of the Immigrant).
As we walk in solidarity, we do it publicly to call out this injustice and highlight the often silenced voice of suffering of immigrants and their families.
We invite you to join us in solidarity.
