Dear friends from the IAF's Bay Area Organizing Committee work,
One of our institutions is reeling from the recent fire devastation: Resurrection Parish in Santa Rosa.
Resurrection is one of the largest Catholic parishes in Sonoma County and has one of the largest immigrant populations. They have been a member of the Bay Area Organizing Committee for 8 years and have worked closely with the Marin Organizing Committee around immigrant and police-community relations issues. Many members of their congregation lived in both Fountaingrove and Coffey Park, two of the hardest-hit neighborhoods in Santa Rosa, and have lost everything.
Our allies at the Marin Organizing Committee have been collecting relief funds for these fire victims.
We can do the same.
From our institution to yours, please join us as we ask our members to donate what they can to this IAF Institutional Partner as they recover and rebuild their lives.
Gifts as modest as $10 are appreciated and would go directly to Resurrection Parish to be distributed to their congregants who are most in need.
