Accompaniment Training at Ansche Chesed
Wed, July 17, 2019 at 10:00 am – 12:00 pm
Join Ansche Chesed and The New Sanctuary Committee (NSC) for an Accompaniment Training. The NSC accompaniment program recruits and trains volunteers to accompany people facing deportation to their immigration hearings and ICE check-ins. This provides moral support to the person facing deportation and enables volunteers to hold immigration authorities accountable. Standing in solidarity with migrants facing deportation also demonstrates to immigration judges, ICE officers, and government attorneys that there is a community mobilized against their deportation. NSC accompanies hundreds of people a year.
The Immigration Accompaniment Program helps support families who are going through the immigration process in 3 ways:
- PROVIDES A SUPPORT STRUCTURE to strengthen those caught in immigration proceedings
- KEEPS FAMILY MEMBERS INFORMED at every step of the process as their loved ones move forward
- HOLDS LEGAL OFFICIALS ACCOUNTABLE for providing accurate information and serving due process
