Join Us in Prayer for DACA and DREAMers—Thursday 8pm!

Young undocumented immigrants are experiencing great anxiety and fear as rumors still suggest the the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program could be terminated at any moment. We need to respond, demanding permanent protection for DREAMers... and we need to pray.

This program has given almost 800,000 young immigrants temporary protection from deportation and the freedom to pursue their dreams. The program has repeatedly been described as “life changing” and has allowed DREAMers to flourish as God intends for us all. Losing DACA would be a devastating blow to all of us — because we all benefit from DACA in some way — but most especially it is tragic for those whose legal status will become precarious once again.

In the midst of disunity, fear, and bigotry, we invite you to join us tomorrow evening for a conference call where faith leaders in the Blessing Not Burden movement will lead prayers of lament, supplication, and hope for DACA and the future of DREAMers.

To participate in this prayer call, dial 641-715-3670 and then follow the instructions. Access code 104402#
