January 28th Event - Presentati
on to Gainesvill e Faith Community! (7pm)
Our group of committed members is excited to start this New Year with you in the city of Gainesville. One of our 2013 goals is to engage our faith communities and local residents on an even deeper level.
Our first step is a special event on January 28 designed to educate friends and supporters about Florida’s immigrant justice movement and how the community can become more involved. The evening will begin at 7 p.m. at the Emmanual Mennonite Church located on 236 NW 18th Avenue in Gainesville.
Highlights will include:
- "Breaking Bread, Building Bridges” potluck initiative
- Detainee visitations in local prisons
- History of migrant farmworkers in Florida
- Coalition of Immokalee Workers’ “March for Rights, Respect, and Fair Food”
- National Farmworker Awareness Week
- Legislative updates at the state level
We hope you’ll consider joining us as we discuss efforts to achieve immigrant and farmworker justice in Florida and throughout the nation. Please email us with any questions.
