On August 16th to 18th, Fr. Brendan Curran, Alma Silva and Samuel Villanueva drove to Mississippi to provide support and gather information on the current situation after the detention of 681 workers in seven poultry plants.
Community immediately sprung to action. Scorpion Graphics volunteered to print 300 backpacks for children of families with the symbol, “Somos Familia/ We are One Family.”
