Jericho Walk at Burlington ICE

  • 1000 District Avenue Burlington, MA, 01803 United States (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Lead Organizer: Burlington Area Clergy 4 Justice  Facebook Page
 
Join us for our monthly Jericho Walk at the ICE office in Burlington, MA.
The Jericho Walk is a silent interfaith prayer and act of solidarity. The walk draws inspiration from the Battle of Jericho, in which the community marched around the city of Jericho seven times, causing the city walls to fall. The Jericho Walk of today is a silent, peaceful, and prayerful walk to bring down the walls of our unjust immigration system and is open to people of all or no faiths.

Please bring signs calling for just treatment of those who are caught in our broken immigration system, suggested messages "Keep Families Together", "No Family Separation", "Not One More/Ni Una Mas", "Not In Our Name". Please refrain from signs explicitly endorsing or condemning any political candidate or official.

We will walk, pray and sing together.  We will gather in front of the office, along District Ave, just look for the people holding signs.

This event will take place unless there is extreme weather.

Weekly Action: Vigil to Oppose Back Bay Billionaire's Pipeline

Weekly Action: Vigil to Oppose Back Bay Billionaire's Pipeline

Where: Corner of: Huntington Ave and Belvidere St, Boston
Lead Organizer: Boston Clean Energy Coaltion, See FB Page


National Grid, with the authorization of the Walsh administration, is constructing a new, mile-long pipeline to bring fracked gas into our city to supply luxury developments such as One Dalton. While this process has been interrupted by NGrid's lockout of its iron workers, we stand in vigil to make known our opposition to this terrible project. At a moment in history when the federal government is promoting short-term corporate profit over the health of the planet, we need the city of Boston to demonstrate that a sustainable, green economy is possible. We should, and could, be shrinking our reliance on fossil fuels - not expanding gas pipeline infrastructure. Join us every Wednesday.

Global Climate Strike!

Save the Date!’

The massive global youth-led school strikes movement is growing! After prompting the biggest climate mobilization ever in March, the youth strikes have continued to grow, with 2,300 school strikes taking place in over 130 countries last month.

On September 20, people all over the world are following their lead and joining the strikes. T

The Statewide Steering Team of 350 Mass voted to endorse and organize with youth leaders and our movement partners toward making the Global Climate Strike in Massachusetts a success. UU Mass Action has pledged to join this effort.

This is going to be an enormous undertaking and it’s going to take all of us. This is a great opportunity for us to stand in solidarity with youth and frontline communities, as we build towards a Green New Deal in Massachusetts.
