Celebrate Easter with us at Christ Lutheran Church, Chicago.

Our Easter Festival begins with a free, community breakfast at 9:30am, followed by our worship service at 10:30am where we celebrate Jesus’ glorious victory over sin and death.

Easter celebrates the event in which God tore down every barrier that separates us, and has reconciled us to God and to one another. Here we live out God’s radical welcome to all people. Join us at this diverse church, where we gather for 40 days in the season of Lent, for a time of focus and simplicity, leading up to Easter when we celebrate God’s life-changing love.

Rauner – Open IL to Syrian Refugees this Chanukkah

December 21, 2016 at The Wrigley Building in Chicago.

tracking.php?code=S0lOVGRDuqIwPtsjfQ3BPE

Co-Sponsors:

American Friends Service Committee – Chicago
American Muslims for Palestine-Chicago
Council on American Islamic Relations – Chicago
Council of Islamic Organizations of Great Chicago
Jewish Voice for Peace-Chicago
Muslim American Society-Chicago
Syrian Community Network (SCN)

Three days before Chanukkah, the Jewish Festival of Lights, Jewish Voice for Peace chapters all over the country are participating in actions and vigils to shine a light against Islamophobia, anti-Arab racism, and the many ways in which these are connected with individual bigotry and state violence (learn more about JVP’s Network Against Islamophobia at againstislamophobia.org)

Here in Chicago, a multi-faith coalition is holding Governor Rauner accountable for his decision to close Illinois’ borders to Syrian refugees. We’ll have a great view of Trump Tower in the background – making clear that Rauner must be held accountable for his contributions to Trump’s climate of hate.

Like President-Elect Trump, Governor Bruce Rauner exploits hate to score political points. One year ago, he shut Illinois’ borders to Syrian refugees, feeding into Trump’s statement at the time that taking in Syrian refugees would be “insane.”

In doing so, Rauner helped create a political climate of fear and confusion that has caused immeasurable damage to efforts to resettle refugees in the U.S. He also contributed to escalating hatred being directed at Muslim and Arab communities.

We demand that Governor Rauner definitively reverse his decision to close Illinois’ borders to Syrian refugees, and commit to using his influence and all the resources at his disposal to make clear Illinois welcomes Syrian refugees.
