El acompañamiento es la práctica de caminar juntos (o virtualmente), a través de la vida diaria, y en momentos difíciles y de incertidumbre. Acompañando a nuestra gente en la lucha por la dignidad, respeto, y seguridad mientras navegan por sistemas profundamente rotos e inhumanos. Hacemos nuestro mejor esfuerzo para que la comunidad esté segura que aquí hay una comunidad aquí para ellos, que no están solas!
Justice and liberation for immigrants requires collective power. Directly impacted immigrants in our community called on the Church Council to launch a program of Immigrant and Refugee Accompaniment in 2017. This program was launched for immigration-related appointments due to ICE showing up at courthouses and violently detaining people, and receiving requests from families of youth & young adults applying for DACA, hesitant to go to the USCIS Office on their own. In 2020 due to the rise of immigration-related arrests once again, especially the recent immigration-related arrests in Skagit County Jails & other Local County Detention Centers which violated the Keep Washington Working Act and Courts Open to All Act, we launched a State Courthouse Accompaniment Program.
Candidates who have personal experience navigating the U.S. immigration system, are people of color, are part of the LGBTQIA community, and/or have a connection to a faith tradition/congregation/spiritual community are strongly encouraged to apply.
