The Taskforce in Support of Immigrant Families advocates for social justice for immigrant families. The group meets to educate others on current events and immigration policies. Taskforce members are actively supporting immigrants in several ways.  

Some of the members are Guardian Angels who accompany immigrant minors to immigration court. Some members are pen pals with immigrants held in detention centers and other members attend vigils in support of immigrant justice.  

All Saints Lutheran Church, ELCA is now a "Welcoming Church," which supports immigrants in our community.  We are doing this by developing a resource guide to local services.
