Immigrant Justice Jericho Walk

December 2, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm CST

Join faith leaders from Faith in Texas and Brite Divinity School at a march around the Tarrant County Sheriff’s office to demand justice for immigrants in Fort Worth!

We demand that Sheriff Waybourn:
1. End the racist attacks on immigrant communities in
Fort Worth!
2. End the 287(g) Agreement!
3. Stop working with ICE!

What is a Jericho Walk? From the Southwestern Conference of the United Church of Christ: Jericho walks are an act of “interfaith prayer and…solidarity. The walk draws inspiration from the Battle of Jericho, in which the community marched around the city of Jericho seven times, causing the city walls to fall. The Jericho Walk of today is a silent, peaceful, and prayerful walk to bring down the walls of our unjust immigration system. It is open to people of all or no faiths.”
