Immigration Court Vigil

There Is Room Here: Asylum Is a Human Right!

Join ECLC with Interfaith Coalition on Immigration (ICOM) on Tuesday, December 11 from 7:30- 8:30 AM outside the immigration court at the Bishop Henry Whipple Federal Building at Fort Snelling as we stand in solidarity with detained immigrants, sing songs of hope, and light candles and wait for the dawn to pierce the shadows over the immigration court there. As people of faith have sought to follow God’s command to welcome the stranger for generations, we now show up in support of the immigrants in our communities.

A member of ECLC’s Immigration Task Force will speak, ECLCer Dick Patterson will lead music, and The Advocates for Human Rights’ Michele Garnett McKenzie will share an update about immigration detention.

Contact Lauren in the office to sign up and get directions to stand with people of faith from across Minnesota and join the group of ECLCers showing up for our neighbors on that day.
