The weekend will include various events but will culminate in a festival on the lawn of the Harding School, 1625 Robins Street from 2-4pm. The festival will include speakers, food trucks, activities for children, and other opportunities to engage acceptance of the stranger in fun and community building ways.

DRIVER’S LISTOS | Trinity Episcopal Church has launched DRIVERS LISTOS. Drivers Listos (Drivers Ready) is a cooperative, interfaith effort to provide rides to our neighbors who are threatened by Immigrant and Customs Enforcement (ICE). Examples of rides include driving a parent to school to drop off or pick-up a child, appointments with doctors, lawyers, legal aid, court appearances, etc. Drivers Listos also plans to organize rides for folks to visit detained relatives in Adelanto. All drivers will be vetted, and training is provided. For more information and to become a driver contact Molly Kellogg at [email protected]
