IMIrJ Monthly Meeting

Salt and Light Lutheran and Leaven Community made a public Declaration of Sanctuary on Sunday, October 15, 2017, affirming our commitment to being a relational safe space for people in this time of fear and discrimination. We also committed to bringing the injustice of immigration policy and procedure to light and co-creating Physical Sanctuary with those most affected.

Members meet with others at the IMIrJ monthly meetings and we are on a neighborhood team with St. Andrews Catholic , St. Charles Catholic and Bethel Lutheran Church.

We invite you to join us as we deepen relationships and build community power through small actions within Leaven Community and city wide-actions with the Interfaith Movement for Immigrant Justice (IMIrJ).
