The team is working with Keep Prescott Together (KPT), a newly formed coalition dedicated to creating capacity for deportation defense in the greater Prescott area. The first step was taken on October 27 with a legal clinic training held in Prescott Valley led by attorney Margo Cowan, founder of Keep Tucson Together. KPT meetings are held every Wednesday at 7:00p in Prescott Valley at Iglesia La Viña, 1823 N. Manley. Email email@example.com if you would like to help make a legal clinic for Prescott area immigrants a reality.
Thank you to the Prescott Indivisible membership for approving an $800 donation to our DACA fund. Recently, we completed the process for our 11th “awardee,” Isaías, from Chino Valley, and a student at Yavapai College pursuing a dual degree in Science and Education. Isaías has already been very involved with progressive causes including doing canvassing for PI-endorsed candidates.
Funds are needed by LINC (Latino Immigrant Network Coalition), co-sponsored by Granite Peak UU Congregation, for its annual holiday breakfast for the Latino immigrant community. LINC provides a hearty breakfast, toys from Santa for every child, and Walmart gift cards for teens and adults. It’s a wonderful morning with music and crafts for the kids as well with around 200 individuals served. This year LINC is short of funds for those gift cards, so a check for $5 – $10 – $20 (or more!) will go a long way to brightening someone’s Christmas. Write your check out to GPUUC, and–important!– write LINC in the memo line. You can mail it to GPUUC, 882 Sunset Ave Prescott 86305.
The Immigration Team will have a holiday get together/meeting, at Maria Elena’s house on Tuesday, December 11, 4:30-6:30p. Check the PI and P&R Calendars for further details.
