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.
