Happy World Migrant and Refugee Day, ICOM members!
For those Catholics who tweet, I hope you’re retweeting the Pope’s many messages about our duty to care for our migrant and refugee neighbors today.
Tomorrow, we are invited to participate in an action calling on Prudential to disinvest from GEO Group, a private prison company that profits off of immigrant detention. As an organization, ICOM has signed on to the attached letter calling for this disinvestment. Tomorrow, the coalition behind the letter (which includes many of our partners in the Sherburne County campaign) will be delivering it to the Prudential Financial Offices at 3350 Lexington Ave N, Suite 305, Shoreview, MN. The group will meet in the parking lot at 10:15am, letter delivery 10:40am, everyone out safely by 11am.
