The NHCUCC Immigrant and Refugee Support Group (IRSG) has created a bond fund to free immigrants from detention at the Strafford County jail in Dover.
Already the fund has been used many times to reunite immigrants with their families and to give them an opportunity to make strong cases for asylum and other legal remedies. The fund is getting low and your contributions are needed!
You can make a check payable to NHCUCC ( "IRSG Bond Fund" on the memo line) and send to NH Conference UCC, 140 Sheep Davis Road, Pembroke, NH 03275. Or you can donate online at: https://bit.ly/2GibJnx. Indicate your gift as "other" and designate the "IRSG Bond Fund."
Your contribution is tax deductible and will make a wonderful difference in the lives of our immigrant neighbors. Thank you!
New Hampshire faith leaders treked from Manchester to Dover in a four day "Solidarity Walk for Immigrant Justice". Father Samuel Fuller, OFM Cap, a Franciscan Friar serving at St. Anne-St. Augustin, Manchester's most diverse parish, said "Our walk will mirror the trip an immigrant who is detained by I.C.E. takes from the Federal Building to the Strafford County Jail and possible deportation. Sadly, this is a journey several of our parishioners have already made in shackles and in fear."
Follow up stories are available on the event Facebook page.
