March and Protest June 30, 2018

Christians around the country have been grief-stricken and outraged about the photos and audio coming from child and family detention centers on the border in the past weeks. The President’s executive order did not resolve the crisis, in fact, it mandates the jailing of immigrant families seeking safety in the U.S. It does not save or release any children from prison.

On Saturday, June 30, Bethany members and friends engaged in two events to protest this evil:

~ The march in San Francisco from Delores Park to City Hall, where thousands gathered to call for the end of family detention and the creation of an humane immigration policy to welcome the stranger.

~ Created by our own Fred Matthews, a local gathering for children and families Saturday, June 30th, at the corner of Hilton and Hickey in South San Francisco, where about 15 people gathered with their signs of protest.
