11:30am on the front lawn
St. Michael’s Litchfield will be hosting Lemon-AID
in support of migrant children being held in detention camps at the border.
One way to help a child being held by the authorities, is to post bail for parents also being held in a detention center, enabling them to wait for their hearing with family already in the US. A bond hearing must be requested and granted before a migrant is eligible to post the minimum $1,500 bond.
Learn more about this situation and ways that that you can help these children.
100% of every Lemon-AID donation will go to support the work of The Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services (RAICES), a nonprofit immigration legal services provider in Texas, founded in 1986.
On the front lawn on Sunday, August 18 and Sunday, September 1 from 11:30am-12:30pm.
During this community gathering there will be information available about a Ministry Network of the Episcopal Church in CT, which is aimed at raising awareness of the plight of the migrant children in the U.S. detention camps. In the case of inclement weather Lemon-AID will be moved to the Community House also at 25 South Street Litchfield.
