Despite the government shutdown and months of holdup in the House on immigration reform (and basically everything), today at 12PM, Democrats in the House plan to introduce an immigration reform bill that mirrors the Gang of 8’s Senate Bill passed in June. As we mobilize in support of the bill, we need your help!
We invite you to join us for our Interfaith Pilgrimage for Just Immigration Reform on Sunday, October 27th (rain or shine) 1:30pm-3pm. The march will begin at Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal RC Church on Straight Path in Wyandanch and ending, half mile down Straight Path, at the US Post Office. There, we will conduct a “Vigil to Stop the Deportations” and hear from faith and other leaders about the urgency of passing the Senate’s immigration reform bill in the House.
Your presence, your voice, your support, will help us gain support for immigration reform. As Congressman Peter King told us in our meeting with him in August, “Keep the pressure on” to get the Senate bill passed in the House. We hope that he will continue to support our efforts.
We will begin the march at Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal at 1:30 PM. There is parking on the church grounds. We suggest if you are attending in a group, that you come in at least two cars, leaving one car at the post office before the event for any who might not be able to walk back to Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal.
Take a step for just immigration reform by joining us on October 27th, and download our new pilgrimage resource guide for other events you can take part in leading up to the pilgrimage! Please let us know if you have questions, or RSVP to attend by emailing Anita at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 631-348-1170 ext. 310.
