Welcome!

Branch Meeting

Wednesday, February 2, 7 pm
Just Bag It!

Half the Sky has been working with the Interfaith Community for Detained Immigrants as we researched the challenges of women in the Northern Triangle of Central America. These challenges are manifesting themselves right here in the Chicagoland area in the lives of immigrants. Pat Motto from ICDI will explain their multi-pronged program of assisting immigrants as they travel through Illinois or set up a home here.

We hope to have an action component to our meeting. All members will be invited to assist us in assembling SNACK BAGS to be given to immigrants on their bus trips through Chicago.

This meeting may be be held via Zoom. When the decision is made, it will be posted here.  We hope you all join us whether we meet through Zoom or in person. If we can meet in person, it will be at the Elmhurst Public Library.
