Javier Flores Garcia Leaves Sanctuary
To the delight of his family, kids, and friends, Javier left sanctuary last Wednesday morning after spending 11 months at ASUMC. The recipient of a special visa for assisting the police whilst being a victim of a crime, Javier is now able to rejoin his family and no longer risk deportation by I.C.E. His case was a rare win within the sanctuary movement, bringing hope to those facing deportation and has brought the attention of media including the New York Times, Washington Post, and ABC News. Throughout the day, his little boy Javier ran through the halls of the office with delight, waiting for everything to be over, happy for his Dad to finally come home. Suffice it to say, it was a very good day. Thank you to everyone for your supported and prayers.
ONE SERVICE – 10AM, October 22, 2017
to celebrate Native American Indian Sunday
Our speaker, Barbara Dumont-Hill, a First Nation Algonquin (Native American), was born on the Kitigan Zibi Anishinabeg Reserve which is located in the Province of Quebec. She is the tenth of 13 children born to courageous Algonquin parents, and she is descended from a long line of Anishinabeg. Barbara is Turtle Clan and has been following the red road for over 30 years. She was humbled by being asked to serve as an Elder with the 2015 Walking With Our Sisters memorial installation, and she has served as Elder for Algonquin College’s Mamedosewin Centre and Tewegan House, a transition place for young Indigenous women in Ottawa. Most recently, Barbara was asked to serve as Elder adviser to the Canadian Department of Justice legal team working with the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls. Barbara continues to promote reconciliation by facilitating Blanket Exercises – a participative exercise that teaches Canadian Indigenous history. Barbara continues to deepen her culture by studying her language, and by drumming and singing the songs that honour her ancestors.
