Refugee Immigration Ministry was founded in 1986 as an Interfaith Ministry whose purpose was to offer Spiritual Care in the detention facilities. As RIM has expanded to other services the collaboration between faith groups has brought volunteers together from many cultures and faiths to provide community-based services to uprooted and often isolated persons. RIM’s participating faith groups include: American Baptist, Buddhist, Episcopal, Hindu, Jewish, Lutheran, Muslim, Roman Catholic, Sikh, Society of Friends, Unitarian Univeralist, United Church of Christ, United Methodist, and United Presbyterian.
How can we connect our movements and reclaim our resources from the destructive forces of defense, “security,” and policing? How is militarism expanding in policing and in our schools? How is it propping up resource extraction abroad and here in the U.S. as at Standing Rock? How can we work to withdraw our consent from these practices and center those that create community control and true community safety and defense?
Massachusetts Peace Action will host a conversation about the real effects of U.S. militarism on our local communities, our society and around the world. Speakers include Maggie Martin and Matt Howard of Iraq Veterans Against the War (IVAW); Mike Prokosch of Dorchester People for Peace; and Didi Delgado and Karlene Griffiths Sekou of Black Lives Matter.
