Letter Writing for Detained Immigrants
Join a Zoom event from Christ Presbyterian on Sunday, May 22nd from 6:30-7:30. (Email here for the link.) Aissa Olivarez, managing attorney for the Community Immigration Law Center, will give a short update on recent Biden policy changes affecting immigration. Then we’ll get to the letter writing to be brought into detention facilities at the border. A letter doesn’t seem like much, but they are a bright spot for people in a difficult environment.
