 Pittsburgh Theological Seminary 616 N. Highland Avenue Pittsburgh, PA 15206

Pennsylvania is home to one of three immigrant family detention centers in the country, and the only publicly-owned one. Governor Wolf has known for two years that his administration could remove families from the abuse and neglect that they have been enduring in the Berks County Family Detention Center. The Governor’s administration has done the bare minimum to right the immoral and illegal detention of immigrant families.

Pastor Maria and Daniel Erdman from Iglesia Presbiteriana Resurreccion will leading our next vigil. Please join us as we continue to lift our voices for the individuals who continue to be detained in the Berks County Detention Center. Please read more about the event and RSVP.

Help Bensalem Resist 287g

BuxMonth Inclusive and Progressive, Make the Road PA (PICC Member), PICC

The recent announcement made by Bensalem’s Public Safety Director, Fred Harran, that Bensalem Police Department has applied to be part of 287g program, in which local police are trained to act as immigration officers, is alarming. Collaboration of local police with ICE opens townships to legal liability, encourages intolerance, and drives immigrant families away. Already, there has been an increase in racial profiling incidents in Bensalem. Community leaders will be speaking out against 287g at the Council Meeting. More information on the event and background on 287g on the Facebook event.
