Touching Hearts through Bullet-Proof Glass: The Human Face of Immigration Detention
by Rev. Roger Jones, JoAnn Anglin, Susan Lange, Alma Lopez and others
Sunday, September 20, 2015
Every month we visit immigrants detained by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) in the county jail. These friendship connections reduce isolation, restore dignity, and break down walls of separation. Yet we find ourselves changed, also. We learn that friendship can go both ways, even through the thick barrier of prison glass. Faithful Friends (Amigos Fieles) are volunteers from UUSS and UU churches in Davis, Auburn, and Grass Valley. Come learn what we have learned of the human face of a complicated immigration system. Discussion to follow with our speakers, who include Joan Lacktis from Grass Valley and Tim Burkhart from Davis .
