Pioneer Valley Project is organizing to support our undocumented friends and neighbors during this time of anxiety and fear. We have formed an Accompaniment Team so that no member of our community stands alone.
This training is in preparation to support undocumented members of our community in upcoming interactions with ICE. This work is a long-term commitment to be present for our undocumented neighbors and provide social and spiritual support for individuals and families. The Accompaniment Team will also potentially assist our immigrant partners with related needs – transportation, connecting to social services, making appointments, etc. In addition, the team will work together to organize vigils and public actions to support individual immigration cases and connect this work to the national movement for immigrant justice. Members of the team may also go with immigrant partners to court hearings and other legal proceedings.
