Healing Hearts, Building Hope

Join us at 6 for food and fellowship.  

Please join us for a community dinner from 6-7pm, with marchers arriving from Somos Un Pueblo Unido's day of action. You are also warmly invited to Somos' Rally and March preceding the dinner. 

And at 7 for prayer and song.

This bilingual multi-faith healing service will celebrate the dignity, humanity, and belovedness of immigrant communities living in Northern New Mexico, while also honoring the struggle, sacrifice, and oppression that continue through a broken immigration system.

Uplifting music, prayer, and stories by immigrants of struggle and empowerment will be shared. Faith leaders from Buddhist, Catholic, Native, Jewish, Protestant, Sikh, Sufi, Unitarian Universalist traditions, and other traditions, will share prayers and help bring our communities together in solidarity, friendship, healing, and building peace.
