The vigil, which was co-sponsored by the CRC Office of Social Justice, Michigan Organizing Project, the Micah Center, and Justice for Our Neighbors, drew a multi-ethnic crowd of more than 100 people of faith from West Michigan. A great amount of energy and hope circulated through Grand Rapids' La Iglesia Metodista Unida La Nueva Esperanza on Monday night. It represented a small step in the long journey toward immigration reform and justice for the sojourners in our midst, but it was nevertheless a significant one.
Those interested in contributing to West Michigan's efforts to bring resolution to the immigration crisis can find more information from the CRC Office of Social Justice, Michigan Organizing Project, the Micah Center, or Justice for Our Neighbors.
