NETWORK’s Nuns on the Bus is coming to Charleston to support commonsense immigration reform. The group will appear at the Circular Congregational Church, 150 Meeting St. on Saturday, June 1 at 7 p.m. Their appearance will be followed by a short walk to the entrance of the Old Slave Mart Museum.
These inspiring women were welcomed last year by thousands of well-wishers as they traveled from state to state in support of federal budget priorities that address the needs of struggling families.
This year, they are traveling across the United States - 6,500 miles over 15 states - 53 events in 40 cities - standing with immigrants, faith-filled activists and Catholic Sisters who serve immigrant communities.
Their message is clear: “We need commonsense immigration policies that reflect our values, not our fears. Congress must act now.”
For more information on this event contact Susan Dunn at firstname.lastname@example.org or Kay Kennerty at email@example.com.
