2019 MCC Bike Michiana Project:
MCC Great Lakes Immigration Work
MCC Great Lakes is committed to respond to immigration related issues in the region and at national level. MCC helps to educate and create awareness about immigration issues; advocates for sensible, humane immigration laws; works to build peace in communities along the U.S.-Mexico border; and provides documentation services support for families seeking asylum, and “know-your-rights” education, with the goal to help immigrants navigate the complex immigration system.
Juan Pacheco, the Peace and Justice Coordinator provides leadership to regional peace and justice programs related to the MCC strategic priorities of restorative justice, immigration, dismantling the Doctrine of Discovery, gun violence prevention, countering militarism, and undoing racism and sexism. Juan will be sharing with us about the work of MCC in relation to Immigration work in the Great Lakes region and at the Borderlands.
