Immanuel House, started by our Presbytery, welcomes new refugees & provides them transitional housing in San Jose. Three new residents are expected soon and more in the future. Because current residents take their bedding with them when they move on to permanent housing, the house needs NEW twin-sized bedding, comforters and pillows as well as NEW towel sets for the new men. Call Flor Silva, house manager, 408 505-8846 to set up a time to drop them off.
The Peace and Justice Working Group of the San Jose Presbytery works on a wide variety of social justice issues. Follow the PJWG on Facebook and get updates on education/action opportunities.
Various times: SURJ (Showing Up for Racial Justice) at Sacred Heart is engaged on issues including the use of SROs (School Resource Officers) in San Jose schools, the upcoming SJPD contract, and ongoing decarceration, immigration and other initiatives. Visit their Action Calendar or sign up for email updates.
