Progressive Jewish Contingent at "Together & Free: Rally Against Family Separation" 
Saturday, June 30, 11 am, Faneuil Hall
We are proud to co-sponsor this event on the National Day of Action. We hope to see you there - look for the BWC banner and Sarah Chapple-Sokol, Ariel DiOrio & Traci Laichter!

Through BWC's Immigrant Justice & Sanctuary Working Group, we were part of launching the Accompaniment Network - which coordinates volunteers to support immigrants facing deportation through being in court with them, providing rides, raising money for bond, and more. Click the link above to learn more about the Network, our values, and how to join.
 
The NSSC is a coalition of nine faith and community groups, including BWC, providing support to a family in Sanctuary in Newton. We need many volunteers to keep this effort going! There must be two documented people at the church at all time and we need more folks to help fill all the shifts. If you are interested in joining or learning more, email bwcimmigrantjustice@gmail.com

This beloved annual tradition is a time for BWC members (young and old!) to connect as we hike and bike in the White Mountains, swim and boat on beautiful Whitton Pond, read, shmooze, and RELAX on the lawn or in the lodge. Learn more.
