We have set the next meeting date for Sunday, February 18 after 2nd service in the undercroft. This will be a planning meeting for us to think together about next steps.

Between now and 2/18 there are 5 events that you may be interested in:
1.Moral Mondays is beginning again at the statehouse. The first one is today, Monday, 1/22.
2. Immigrant Advocacy Day is this Thursday, 1/25, also at the capitol.
3. There is a need for a community member to be accompanied to her ICE check in on Feb 13 at the Federal Building downtown. Probably in the a.m. More details to come. Let me know if you want to to more about what this is and why it is happening.
4. Aldersgate UMC, is hosting a potluck+ immigration related film on Tuesday, February 6th. Flyer attached.

  1. The Des Moines cluster of the Iowa Sanctuary Movement will be meeting at St. Paul's on Tuesday, Feb 20th, at 6pm, probably in the undercroft. This is a gathering of individuals and representatives from the DSM-area churches who are involved in the movement - from hosting to support to ally - to plan and share updates. Traci and I go as regularly as we can, but it is open to all who are interested.

Proposal: tracking along with all the email updates and paying attention to the news and following legislation is a nightmare. We are considering pulling together a weekly email digest for you all that would contain legislative updates (nationally and locally) opportunities for action, local events, etc. pertinent to the sanctuary movement. They would be short, containing headlines, brief summaries, and links. Would you be interested? Please respond yea or nay.
Thank you are for your continued support and interest! You have beautiful souls.
