Beautiful Quilt Which Depicts Immigrants’ Suffering and Injustice

The PCIJ advocates that all immigrants receive compassionate, just and dignified treatment , at our borders and within our country, whether they are asylum seekers, refugees or those in search of a better life.
The quilt will be on display to the public at Allendale Methodist Church, Tuesday, April 6 through Thursday, April 8, on the Northwest corner of the Church, at 38th Ave North and Haines Road. Parking is available for those who would like to walk the exhibit. PCIJ activists will be present for discussion and to answer questions.
