On Friday, May 11, 2018, the tenth anniversary of the Postville, Iowa Immigration Raid will be observed in Postville. It will be a time to remember the 389 persons arrested on May 12, 2008, to recognize this defining moment as a Summons to challenge current anti-immigrant rhetoric and behaviors and to unite in demanding just, humane, and comprehensive immigration reform.
The Summons will begin with a 10:00 a.m. Interfaith Prayer Service at St. Bridget Catholic Church.
At 11:30 a.m., participants will hold a rally at Meyer Park. Speakers from the immigrant, legal, and faith communities will call for renewed resolve to seek comprehensive, just solutions to the longstanding impasse.
