We Believe Colorado: Marching for immigrants’ rights
Just as Colorado is a presidential battleground state, it is critical ground in the movement for immigrants’ rights. As the state’s immigrant population continues to burgeon and ideologues spew invective against them, the faith community is standing up for the rights and dignity of all people, including newcomers to the country.
To this end, leaders of We Believe Colorado are taking part in today’s We Are America march and rally for immigrants’ rights in Denver. Early reports indicate that 1,500 people of all backgrounds joined the march. It included prayers and remarks from We Believe’s interfaith leadership, and attracted significant community and media attention to their call for beloved community and the common good. Yet another example of faith groups across the country taking action on values issues. Doing so in the shadow of the convention is especially significant.
