Pilgrimage of Clergy and People of Faith Form a Prayer Chain Around Stewart Detention Center

 

Lumpkin, Ga. -- On Saturday, August 4th at 3 p.m., clergy and people of faith from Myers Park Baptist Church in Charlotte, NC, will activate a “prayer chain” around Stewart Detention Center that houses immigrants awaiting deportation. They will call for justice and an end to our nation’s shameful immigration policies that criminalize children and families seeking safety.

 

The faith leaders made the pilgrimage along the same route that many immigrants detained in North Carolina make when they are transported from Charlotte Immigration Court to Stewart Detention Center.
