Interfaith Prayer Vigil for Immigrant Justice
Please join us for an Interfaith Prayer Vigil outside of the offices of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) at the federal building in Manchester.
This vigil is co – sponsored by AFSC-NH, the Granite State Organizing Project and the NH Alliance for Immigrants and Refugees.
We will be standing in prayer, songs and silence in solidarity with immigrants who have check-in appointments that day with ICE, and who face the threat of detention and deportation. Our message to immigrant families is “We stand with you.” Our message to ICE is “Let them stay. Stop separating families.”
We welcome people from all faith traditions to be with us, as well as those who do not identify with a faith tradition.
The vigil will last from 8:30 am to 9:30 am. We will stand in silent witness until 10 am as we await news of the outcomes of check-in appointments.
We will not be yelling; no handmade signs; this is not a rally.
This event is peaceful, and is not designed to disrupt traffic or entry to the building.
