Justice for Our Neighbors (JFON)
Justice for Our Neighbors (JFON), an United Methodist Church affiliated ministry that provides vital legal services to immigrants, will open a new legal clinic in Lowell beginning Sept. 1 where it will focus on providing aid for local children. Another immigration attorney has already been hired to oversee this location and volunteers, who make up most of the critical staffing needs in all of JFON’s offices throughout the nation, are in dire need for the Lowell location. 

The Lowell clinic needs immediate help to coordinate and oversee each monthly walk-in, open clinic dates. Help is also needed with hospitality, childcare, fundraising, Spanish to English translation, and the housing of children. The next organizational meeting will be held at the West Chelmsford United Methodist Church, which is the home church of Rev. Wendell Luke, on August 15 at 7:00 p.m.  

With JFON offices well established in Woburn and Springfield, Lowell marks the third clinic that will open in Massachusetts. A fourth office is scheduled for opening in Lawrence for later this year to meet the surging needs for legal representation for the immigrants. Extensive training is provided for all volunteers.
Anyone interested in attending this meeting or in volunteering should speak with Richard Lee.

Summer Service Reminder.
For the months of July and August, Sunday Worship will start at 9:30 am.

Together & Free
Rally Against Family Separation
City Hall Plaza, Boston
Saturday 30 June 11:00 AM
From the border to Boston and all over the country, families are being torn apart by a government that criminalizes, detains, and deports them. Recently, the Trump administration escalated its racist attacks on immigrants by separating children from their parents at the border and putting them in cages. After public outcry, their “solution” was to keep families together... in detention centers. Jailing families is not a solution. 

We know that families belong together and free, but this administration isn’t stopping there. Trump is also keeping people from majority Muslim countries from being reunited with their families in the United States. He is still fighting to keep the Muslim Ban in place. The Supreme Court is expected to rule on the ban this week, and we need to let them know they have to overturn it once and for all. 

This goes beyond Trump. Deportation is part of a system that targets and profits off of immigrants and people of color.  Now is the time to be clear: this is about putting an end to criminalization, detention, and deportations in our communities. NO ONE should be kept from the place they choose to call home and the people they choose to call family.  

Here in Massachusetts, we’re calling on elected officials to protect community members by passing basic protections included in our state budget: YES to due process for detained immigrants, NO to local police acting as ICE agents and asking about immigration status.
