We will have a presentation about local immigration enforcement, the ordinance recently introduced to Metro Council that would govern the relationship between LMPD and ICE, faith community updates and next steps for the Interfaith Coalition for Immigrant Justice (ICIJ)
This coalition (in formation) emerged from a series of “Faith Conversations on Sanctuary and Solidarity” convened by Louisville Showing Up for Racial Justice (LSURJ) during the first half of 2017.
Throughout the country courageous members of immigrant communities are leading the way in movements for justice. The emerging ICIJ stands in support of their leadership and seeks a collective way to extend our material resources, our voices and our bodies in solidarity. To this end we work closely with two local immigrant-led organizations, Mijente Louisville and La Casita Center.
Organized by LSURJ – Faith
