Immigration/Immigration Task Force:

  • Interfaith Movement for Human Integrity: Based in Oakland and led by Rev. Deborah Lee. They’re very active with meetings, vigils and other events. Find more information here: https://www.im4humanintegrity.org 
  • IM Hope CenterAn immigration task force comprised of our West Contra Costa cluster of UMC’s. Its aim is to assist immigrants through the federal process. Citizenship classes have been arranged by the West Contra Costa Adult School, to resume after “shelter-in-place” ends. They’re looking for volunteers to engage class participants in conversation as practice for immigration interviews. A small group meets at 2:00 pm on second Wednesdays at El Sobrante UMC (on Zoom for now). It’s headed by Kofi Baah-Arhin. Contact information: imhope.center@gmail.com / .
