Interfaith Coalition on Immigration (ICOM) is an organization that engages in spiritual and multicultural action in solidarity with immigrants and refugees. They work to achieve justice and stand in opposition to ICE policies of detention and deportation that dehumanize immigrants and separate them from their families.
ICOM holds a monthly vigil at the Whipple Federal Building at Fort Snelling; the regional ICE headquarter for a five-state area. This is the site of an immigration court and also some detention facilities. Members of our congregation have attended court hearings here in support of our immigrant friends and family. On February 9 at 7:30 am, our congregation’s Sanctuary Leadership Team and a Beth Jacob Congregation team will host the monthly prayer vigil. People of any faith are invited to join in a brief service of reflection, prayer, and song. Opportunities for activism are presented to the attendees. We hope you will support the vigil and, more importantly, our immigrant friends and neighbors by attending.
