Muslim Space is planning to take a trip to the US-Mexico border in an event organized by Texas Impact called “Courts & Ports Advocacy Intensive”. This 2-day immersion experience engages people of faith to witness first-hand the legal and law enforcement processes related to immigration, detention, and deportation occurring in South Texas.
There, participants will be able to learn from the experts. Courts & Ports is a partnership between the Interfaith Center and the American Civil Liberties Union of Texas. Participants observe proceedings in federal criminal court, and record their observations for use by ACLU and other attorneys; meet with faith and policy experts working on the border; spend time with individuals who have pending asylum cases; engage in contextualizing discussion with Texas Impact pastoral staff and other faith leaders; plan and participate in worship; and become part of an online “alumni” community.
The trip will be scheduled for some time in January 2020.
If you are interested in making this trip or learning more about it you’ll want to attend this info session. Erica Nelson works for Texas Impact and will be presenting on this program and will answer all your questions.
