Helping our Immigrant Friends with Accompaniment

Start: Sunday, November 05, 2017 1:30 PM

End: Sunday, November 05, 2017 3:00 PM


The First Church of Christ, Congregational in East Haddam and St. Stephen's Episcopal Church are hosting a training as part of the the New Sanctuary's accompaniment program.

Join us as we answer questions and dispel myths about immigration in the United States while also learning about accompaniment.  Accompaniment is a program that matches immigrants with volunteers who accompany them to hearings and periodic check-ins with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and the Intensive Supervision and Appearance Program (ISAP). Through the Accompaniment Program, you can stand in solidarity with our immigrant neighbors wile ensuring their rights are upheld.  

The training is FREE and open to the public, but a good will offering to cover costs of training materials and posters will be appreciated.
