Migrant Action Alert

On this International Human Rights Day, Giving Voice joins the Sister Servants of the Immaculate Heart of Mary as they spearhead a Christmas Postcard Campaign in support of migrants during an interfaith National Week of Action for Migrant Justice.

The week of prayer and action calls for:

  • An end to detention and deportation of immigrants,
  • Respect for the human right to migrate, and,
  • An end to the militarization at the border.

"I felt compelled to make an art piece comparing the journey of migrants today with the biblical story of the Flight into Egypt" - Sister Lisa Perkowski, IHM

Giving Voice participant Sister Lisa Perkowski, IHM, designed a beautiful postcard in support of migrants, which can be mailed to the President, Vice President and other elected officials. Congregations are asked to cover postcard printing costs and to make a donation to the Annunciation House in El Paso, where sisters work directly with migrants.

We are so grateful Sister Lisa answered the invitation from LCWR to stand in solidarity with migrants, to create this beautiful postcard, and invite others to join in prayer and action!
