[from Faith In Fresno and Faith In the Valley–a PICO affiliated 501c3]
Many of you have seen the horrific images and heard the troubling sounds of
children being separated from families and treated inhumanely!

Sociologist Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. quoted the great parliamentarian
Edmund Burke, “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for *good
[people]* to *do nothing*.”

*Faith in the Valley will be joining hundreds of clergy, faith leaders,
allies and community members this weekend* in the family separation zone in
San Diego, where state-sponsored traumatization and family separation is
taking place.

*We invite you to join us as we travel down on **Friday, June 22nd *with
many others across the state to organize a weekend of faithful action and
resistance. Faith in Fresno will organize transportation for our clergy and
leaders as we plan to spend Friday, June 22 – Sunday, June 24 in the family
separation zone holding vigil and taking action for families! A tentative
outline of events for the weekend is below.

*If you are interested in joining, please reply to confirm your spot on the
van! *
