OFOR is partnering with IMIrJ (Interfaith Movement for Immigrant Justice) in creating a sacred circle led by two of our OFOR Board members, Xeo Sterling and Michael Colvin. Now through the election, our meetings will be a bridge between the sacred encounters we’re building with directly impacted communities and strategic sacred action that embodies a world we want to live in. Sacred Circles will provide accountability, direction, and support as we live into courageous action for racial and immigrant justice.
A “Sacred Circle” is a grouping of 7-15 people who covenant to:
- Be in relationship with and accountable to one another
- Meet (virtually) once a month from now through the election
- Stay in touch with one another between Circle meetings
- Learn and act together to advance immigrant and racial justice, in coordination with IMIrJ, immigrant and Black-led partner organizations, and other Sacred Circles in their region and throughout the state. (For example, during our first meeting we will reflect together on the values we want to see reflected in our state’s budget, then take 10 minutes to call our legislators).
The Sacred Circle meetings will be held on the 3rd Monday of each month, August – November, from 7-8:30 p.m.
An information session will be hosted on August 3rd at 7 p.m. for those who wish to learn more.
All are welcome!
