Mimi Copp Johnson wants to tell us about a ministry she has taken on and asks for our support for Carmela and her family.
In November 2017, a mother named Carmela knocked on the doors of churches in New Jersey and Pennsylvania asking for sanctuary to protest deportation orders for her children and herself. Every congregation said no. Then she found the Church of the Advocate in North Philadelphia. They said yes.
New Sanctuary Movement is supporting the family as they are in sanctuary in North Philadelphia, and has asked me to be on a support team for the family. We are collecting signatures for her asylum case until Jan 22. Hear Carmela’s story and consider signing a petition in support of her asylum case. Thank you on behalf of Carmela and her family, Mimi Copp Johnson
