A message from CLINIC’s executive director: Post-election unity

Dear friends,

I am writing to thank each and every one of you for your stamina, passion, dedication and non-stop hard work over the last four years.

During church services with my Intentional Catholic Community this weekend, one of the wise elders said it did not become fully apparent how harrowing these last four years had been until the final election results were announced. She felt that she could finally and fully breathe. That is how I felt as well. And I immediately thought of all of you and the tremendous work you have done standing by and with each other and our immigrant brothers and sisters — giving so much of your time, your energy and your love.

We look forward to working with you, our partners and all levels of the new administration, to renew this nation’s commitment to being a beloved community of welcome and inclusivity.

I also write to remind you that we at CLINIC are still here to serve you in this time of transition. Learn more about CLINIC’s upcoming trainings and register here. Remember that our issues page houses the latest on topics such as asylum, USCIS processing fees and public charge. For deeper analysis, CLINIC’s resource library is open 24/7.

With hope for unity and a return to our values, I remain sincerely yours.

Anna Gallagher, Executive Director
