Volunteers Needed: Citizenship Clinic

Saturday, October 13th, 9am-3:30pm, Christ Church United, 1 Bartlett St, Lowell

Becoming a U.S. citizen is one of the most important and valuable things an immigrant can do – which is why promoting naturalization and helping people apply is a key part of MIRA’s mission. At our monthly clinics, we guide applicants through the naturalization form, step by step, and let them know if they qualify for a waiver of federal fees. People sign up in advance (usually 20–40, though at this one, our first after the summer break, we expect a larger group), and MIRA’s Citizenship Team, supported by volunteers, go through the process with each applicant, one-on-one. If you’ve never volunteered at one of our clinics before, or haven’t done it for a long time, we’ll need you to come in at 9am to get basic training before we start.

Assist Re-United Families in North Chelmsford and Lowell

Together & Free is recruiting volunteers to join ‘support pods’ for families that were separated while crossing the border into the U.S. and are now reunited in the Boston area. Each volunteer will be part of a small group that is dedicated to one or two families, and together, the group will make an ongoing commitment to help the family by gathering donations on their behalf, visiting them to drop off food or clothes, giving them rides to appointments, helping them navigate accessing services, etc. Each individual volunteer will have flexibility to help when they are able, and the family will have a network to draw on. At the moment, there is an urgent need for more volunteers to help families in North Chelmsford and Lowell. These are Spanish-speaking families, so speaking Spanish is a plus, but not necessary.

If interested, email

A Rapid Response Rally if Mueller OR ROSENSTEIN are Fired

If the firing happens before 2pm, the event will be held at 5pm the same day. If it happens after 2pm, the event will be held at noon the following day. Ladd and Whitney Memorial (the island outside City Hall), 309 Merrimack Street, Lowell

Nobody is above the law! Donald Trump is publicly considering firing special counsel Robert Mueller. This week, it became clear that he could fire Rosenstein as well. This would be a constitutional crisis for our country. Our response in the minutes and hours following a power grab will dictate what happens next, which is why an immediate response is imperative. If Mueller/Rosenstein are fired or forced out, this will trigger the protest. If they resign, it will not.

Jericho Walk at ICE Office

Tuesday, October 16th, 1-2pm, ICE, 1000 District Ave, Burlington

The Jericho Walk is a silent interfaith prayer and act of solidarity. The walk draws inspiration from the Battle of Jericho, in which the community marched around the city of Jericho seven times, causing the city walls to fall. The Jericho Walk of today is a silent, peaceful, and prayerful walk to bring down the walls of our unjust immigration system and is open to people of all or no faiths. Please bring signs calling for just treatment of those who are caught in our broken immigration system.
