Here in Austin, the immigrant community is being terrorized by recent round-ups, deportations, and general harrassment. In response to this unfortunate situation, Manos de Cristo is opening our doors to all for special activities that will dovetail nicely with the May 1 demonstration and strike.
The schedule is as follows:
11:00 am - Presentation by Jacqueline Watson, Immigration Lawyer.
12:00 pm - Prayer for the Immigrant Community
12:30 pm - Time of fellowship. (Please bring your lunch. We will provide drinks and cookies.)
1:00 pm - Service project with representatives from the Mexican American Legislative Caucus.
2:30 pm - Departure for the march for those that wish to participate.
Manos de Cristo is a Presbyterian ministry that provides basic services and education classes for a primarily Spanish-speaking, immigrant community. We are located at 4911 Harmon Ave and our phone is 512-477-7454.
