Civil Rights of Immigrants
Prayer Vigil and Call to Action

The vigil will include story-telling and a candle-lighting ceremony designed to deepen our reflection as we pray for:

  • Immigrants being held in Immigrant Detention Centers across the country, vulnerable to infection from the coronavirus.
  • Immigrants on the front lines serving as essential workers during the pandemic who are keeping us fed, saving lives, and keeping the economy running.
  • The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program and DACA-mented young people who are awaiting the Supreme Court’s decision in June on the fate of DACA.

Northeast Wisconsin participants include José Lozano, Terry Dawson, Nancy Bourassa, and Fr. Joseph Mattern.

Participants will also be prepped to take action following the vigil by reaching out to decision-makers in their communities and states, as well as to their Members of Congress and the Secretary of Homeland Security, calling on them to end detentions and protect vulnerable immigrants.
