Participants will walk the 36 miles from Concord to Dover over the course of these days and you are welcome to join us! The walk begins in Concord at the US District Courthouse. The walk will end at the Strafford County Jail in Dover, where ICE jails people slated for their deportation. Can you join us?
Each day participants will walk 8-10 miles and stop in towns along the way. In the evenings we will hold educational, prayerful or discussion-focused events open to the public.
The Solidarity Walk for Immigrant Justice will kick off Wednesday morning with a brief prayer service at South Church at 27 Pleasant Street in Concord.
Walkers may ask for sponsorships for donations to New Hampshire bond funds. These funds provide bond money so that people being held by ICE for alleged immigration violations can get out of the Strafford County House of Corrections and continue life in the community while awaiting their day in court. Once their cases conclude, the money returns to the fund and can be used again to help someone else.
The NH Immigrant Solidarity Network will host three evening events as a part of their sojourn. All people (whether or not you walked) are welcome to share in a potluck meal and discussion group each night.
