Dear friends,

During Advent, we are reminded that we must take part in the coming of Christ by enacting an Awakened Church that sees and resists injustice. This Saturday, join Movimiento Cosecha in a dance party to confront the fear and hate President Elect Donald Trump has used to attack people who are undocumented immigrants.

St. Stephen’s Church and the Episcopal City Mission will host a breakfast at 9am before Cosecha’s Salsa Shutdown to connect and orient those called to act. Below, learn more about this fun and powerful action and the event before it at the Episcopal Diocese of Massachusetts.

Join St. Stephen’s Church and Episcopal City Mission

for breakfast, relationship building and an orientation to public justice action before joining Movimiento Cosecha’s #SalsaShutdown downtown

THIS Saturday December 3, 2016

9:00 am at the Episcopal Diocese of Massachusetts

(138 Tremont Street downstairs in Sproat Hall)

St. Stephen’s Church, Episcopal City Mission, and our partners stand with our members, families and communities for respect, dignity and permanent protection for undocumented immigrants.

This Advent, our communities are watching. We are concerned that under the new, incoming federal administration, undocumented immigrants will be at more risk than ever. Past methods for action and change will not be enough. Undocumented workers will win permanent protection, respect, and dignity only with the loving, active support of people who care, people who recognize the existence and critical importance of immigrants. People like us.  

So this Advent, we are watching. But we are not waiting.  We are acting. We will use our consumer power to show how much this country depends on the work of immigrants, both documented and undocumented. We are launching a #MigrantBoycott and to make it a reality we need 100,000 pledges.

Join us downtown for the largest salsa party action that Boston has ever seen! After an introduction & prayer, we will meet up with Cosecha organizers in the Common near the Park St. Station Entrance. If you come later than 10:30, text the number below for exact location! We are bringing joy, visibility, and a dance party to Downtown Crossing because it is a hub of stores that depend on immigrant shoppers who buy goods there everyday. Bring all your friends and family. #SalsaShutDown

Movimiento Cosecha is a popular movement for the permanent protection, respect, and dignity of the immigrant community. To learn more visit: http://www.lahuelga.com/
