Immigrant Accompaniment Training

On Oct. 24th at 6:30pm, Brentwood is hosting a Faith Voices Immigrant Accompaniment Training we hope you can attend.

There have been several cases of migrants being detained after going for a routine ICE check-in. They literally disappeared without being allowed to inform their friends or relatives, creating panic among their loved ones.

By volunteering to accompany migrants to ICE check-ins, immigration, and other court hearings, you are showing solidarity and helping to ease the anxiety of interacting with the legal system, reducing the likelihood of detention with your presence, and keeping relatives or lawyers informed in case the person with you is detained. This is a huge help to efforts to stop actual deportation.

Join us to learn more about accompaniment: why it is needed, what it requires, and how you can be involved, join us Tuesday, October 24th, 6:30-8pm.

(Use the back doors on the south side of the church, next to the children’s playground.)
