Help To Support Migrants in Detention During COVID-19
Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service (LIRS) recently launched “Hope Can’t Be Quarantined: How To Support Migrants In Detention During This Time of Crisis”. For our friends in immigration detention, the isolation that they experience has only been intensified by the authorities’ decision to indefinitely postpone visits from family, faith leaders and volunteers in an effort to slow the spread of COVID-19. These visits are a vital source of hope for our immigrant brothers and sisters, hungry for contact with the outside world.
LIRS believes that hope can’t be quarantined. We know that in times of trial, we must lean on each other and find creative ways to stay connected to those we love. That is why Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service is calling you to action on behalf of our friends in detention, to remind them that they are not forgotten during these incredibly trying times. Whether it’s through writing a message of hope, organizing a prayer vigil, contacting your elected officials or simply educating yourself and others on the issues, download our new toolkit to learn all the ways you can help right now.
