Peace & Justice News – Sr. Jaculyn Hanrahan

JUSTICE 911 - July 18, 2019 is a national day of action to challenge the Trump administration’s abuse of immigrant children and families. Catholic planning partners include, the Leadership Conference of Women Religious (LCWR), Conference of Major Superiors of Men (CMSM), Franciscan Action Network (FAN), Ignatian Solidarity Network, the Sisters of Mercy of the Americas, the Maryknoll Office of Global Concerns, Columban Center for Advocacy, National Advocacy Center of the Sisters of the Good Shepherd, Sisters of the Sacred Heart, and Pax Christi

The prayerful direct action in Washington DC is scheduled for mid-morning on July 18. Those who gather will call on the Trump administration to end the abuse and detention of children. The event will include prayer, ritual, and a call to action by Catholic leaders. Because of the urgency and depth of the injustice, there will also be an opportunity, for those who choose, to engage in nonviolent civil disobedience. Those who seriously consider coming to Washington DC on July 18 to join in this event should contact one of the groups listed above. If you are interested and able to join us in Washington, please complete this form to share your interest with organizers.

Those of us who can’t join in person on the 18th, are asked to join in spirit. The participants count on the prayerful support of each of us. They also hope that we will be able to join them in subsequent national and local actions.
