Solidarity Pilgrimage for Immigrant Justice 2019

Cyclist and Volunteer Commitment Form

Wednesday, August 21 through Saturday, August 24, 2019

Join us in the 2019 Solidarity Pilgrimage for Immigrant Justice this August! Participants will bike the 160 miles from Montpelier, VT to Dover, NH over the course of 4 days. The ride begins at the Unitarian Church of Montpelier and covers an average of 45 miles/day ending in a 5 mile walk at the Strafford County Jail in Dover, NH. Walkers may join us for the last few miles of the journey or for any of the evening programs along the way. Immigrants from VT who are detained by ICE and awaiting deportation are held at the Strafford County Jail in Dove, NH.

Will you join us to bike or walk? Will you volunteer to help support participants?

Cyclist will ride between 20-55 miles each day, stopping in towns along the way and staying at supportive faith communities in the evenings. Every morning will begin with an overview of the route and a time of reflection on what our migrant sisters and brothers are facing. In the evenings we will hold educational, prayerful or discussion-focused events open to the public.

We need your help to make this a successful event! We need riders as well as volunteers to support those riding. Please complete this form to let us know how you'd like to participate. More details about the ride and stop locations will be emailed to participants after registering. The cost of the trip is $35 (breakfast, dinner and snacks provided; accomodations on church floors or by tent if you bring one) but please do not let finances hinder you from joining us!

For more information or questions about the ride, please contact Melissa Battah ([email protected]) or at 802-651-8889.
