Bridges Not Walls

February 17, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

IJPC will be participating in the Cincinnati location of Faith and Public Life’s campaign of “Bridges Not Walls”. February 17th marks the one year anniversary of Pope Francis’ visit to the US/Mexico border. When Pope Francis prayed for migrants and refugees at the border he transformed a dusty fence into an oasis of hope. Now just days into the new administration, immigrant and refugee families are now at greater risk than ever.  As people of faith, we must respond with one voice: “Build bridges, not walls.” Together our voices can echo through the halls of Congress. Join us on the 17th OUTSIDE of Senator Portman’s office for a peaceful demonstration.
