Taking Faith in Ft. Collins

By Jennifer Piper, Interfaith Organizing Director, AFSC Colorado

AFSC's organizing work in the faith community is really starting to take root in Fort Collins.

In August of 2009, I was invited to speak in Fort Collins through a New Sanctuary Movement contact who would also be speaking. After we spoke to the group of 80 clergy and laypeople, the Interfaith Immigrant Rights Coalition of Northern Colorado (IIRCNC) was formed.

Faith Communities Drum Down the Walls

Monday, June 7, 2010 - 6:00pm

WHAT:     Community groups join together to Drum Down the Walls … and March to the Rhythm of Our Hearts.  Unjust laws, detention center walls, and discrimination against anyone in our community. What do these all have in common? All these serve to keep our community divided. We will come together, march to the rhythm of our hearts, in the spirit of Stonewall, we will not be kept apart by any Walls, real or perceived. .

Death at U.S.-Mexico Border Prompts Calls for Change

AFSC staff have expressed their sorrow about the death of Anastasio Hernandez Rojas, an immigrant who died after being tasered by a U.S. Customs and Border Protection agent during Memorial Day weekend. A father of five children who were born in the United States, Hernandez was recently deported to Mexico after living in the U.S. for many years.

AFSC, along with immigrant community partners, have long called for a demilitarization of the Mexico-U.S. border and new policies that protect the rights and dignity of all, including immigrants.
