EVENT DETAILS

October 16, 2018
  • The Power of Our Voices: Asylum Seekers and Hope

    October 16, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
    Hayward, California

    Ministerio Latinx strongly believes in the power of peer counseling to support a recently arrived immigrant family from Nicaragua. The
    mother and her three small children ages 2, 5, and 9 were released by ICE at the end of April. They are currently being housed at a church in Hayward, CA. As part of the pastoral accompaniment Pastor Ramos have been providing emotional support through counseling. Ministerio Latinx enlisted the collaboration of an art therapist from El Salvador who is herself an immigrant seeking asylum in this country. This counseling is culturally tailored to match the specific needs of a family traumatized by the effects of immigrating without documents. The father is still at a detention center in Arizona and this too is creating stress and anxiety on the family. The healing and emotional support are key for this family’s adjustment to their new lives as immigrants in this country.

    Alianza Americas is proudly sponsoring a series of sessions, during our National Leadership Assembly we will include the art work by the Nicaraguan family as part of our SOMOS/We Are, the 2018 theme is "The Power of Our Voices: Resisting, Connecting and Transforming Inequality" to learn more about SOMOS/We Are visit https://www.alianzaamericas.org/somos-we-are/
