Interfaith Jericho Walk for Immigrant Justice

July 3 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Free

“[ICE] has turned into something that is dedicated to ripping families apart. The time has come, as I have said, to re-evaluate what we have in place, to get rid of ICE,” Congressman Jim McGovern at Press Conference for Immigrant Family Unity, June 23 at First Church Amherst.

Join us for our monthly Jericho Walk for Immigrant Justice, circling the Springfield Old Federal Building seven times in the Biblical tradition of Joshua, to bring the walls tumbling down.

This month’s walk will highlight the cruelty inflicted by the ICE office. We will send a delegation of 6 representatives to an 11:45 meeting with the office of Senator Elizabeth Warren following the walk, asking her to join Congressman McGovern in calling for an end to ICE.

Join us at 1550 Main Street in Springfield at 11 a.m.

For carpooling, meet at 10 a.m. at Sheldon Field in Northampton or at 10 a.m. at First Church Amherst.

Bring your signs! Come with stories of why this matters to you. Bring your musical instruments! We can’t wait to see you. 🙂
