The North American Dominican Justice Promoters gathered at Techny Towers near Chicago March 2-4. This bi-annual gathering is an opportunity for promoter input and discussion on the signs of the times and the subsequent updating of the US Dominican Call to Justice as well as serving as a support to the promoters in their justice work.
In February 2017 the Dominican Sisters of Blauvelt “closed their weekend Chapter meeting with a demonstration of solidarity by the sisters and associates with our Muslim, Immigrant, and Refugee sisters and brothers.” Since 2011 the Dominican Sisters of Blauvelt, in collaboration with the Dominican Sisters of Amityville, Caldwell, Hope and Sparkill, have been “committed to support a comprehensive and compassionate immigration law that recognizes the human situation of separated families and the oppressive living conditions that force people to migrate.”
