Solidarity Day of Action Recap
Thank you to everyone who participated in this event! Many people of all faiths supported this three-stage, socially-distanced Day of Action for immigrant justice.
See this news coverage of the Day:
- Union Leader, Vigil calls for immigrant justice in Manchester.
- Seacoast Online, ‘You stood with us’: Rally fights for ICE detainees, celebrates asylum for Indonesians
We received letters of support from all of our Congressional delegates:
Our friends at Granite State Organizing Project have set up an easy-to-use site to call and email these delegates and ask them to support the Day of Action’s demands for immigrant justice. These demands are congruent with the NH Council of Churches’ Joint Statement on Immigration, unanimously approved by our member denominations in 2012.
Sunday, August 16, 2020, 1:00pm-5:00pm
Due to COVID-19, this action will not be a four-day Solidarity Walk as in 2018 and 2019.
RSVP here to let us know you are coming and to receive updates.

Participants will drive the 42 miles from Manchester to Dover in and you are welcome to join us! The Day of Action begins in Manchester outside the ICE offices at the Norris Cotton Federal Building. It will end at the Strafford County Jail in Dover, where ICE jails people slated for their deportation. Afterward, we will have a socially-distant rally and picnic at nearby Maranatha Indonesian Church. Can you join us?
