Congratulations to Becky Cardenas and the rest of the ACJP team on their two year anniversary of ACJP at East Valley Pentecostal Church! Every Tuesday, rain or shine, the ACJP squad has met with families who have come to those evening meetings seeking assistance for themselves and their loved ones. The ACJP team have partnering with them to better understand the court system (both criminal and immigration court), identify what role they can play as a supportive family, and ultimately change the outcome of countless cases. The gatherings have allowed families to know that they are not alone, can get supported by the community, and can bring their loved ones home. Families have learned how to better connect with the appointed lawyer, and ensure that their loved one is receiving the zealous defense they deserve. We’ve had a countless number of families come through our Tuesday ACJP sessions, but here were some examples that show a glimpse as to the transformative power of family and community organizing. And if you are so moved, we would love if you “like” the blog page, “follow” the blog to stay updated, and share the work with those who may be interested.
