Our colleagues at NETWORK will hold a briefing for the U.S. House of Representatives on Wednesday, July 24 at 1:30pm about their recent three-week cross-country "Nuns on the Bus" 6,800 mile tour for faith, family and citizenship. Please email your representative and urge him or her to attend the briefing.
Thousands of people came to the events. Nuns on the Bus met with farmworkers, refugees and asylees, DREAMers and their parents, and Catholic sisters and allies across the country. Regardless of which state they were in, one theme was consistent: immigrants are the building blocks of the community. Stories of hope and longing, as well as dreams and desperation, touched their hearts and occupied their prayers during the bus tour. We need the House of Representatives to hear those stories.
