I went to the rally in Norwalk yesterday. There were approx. 200 or more people there. One of the main concerns is meeting the needs of the children whose parents are in jail. All have been placed with relative or friends, but monetary donations are appreciated to help with their care. Also, a 15-year-old boy spoke and said it costs 21cents per minute for him to talk on the phone with his Mom who is in jail. St. Paul’s Parish in Norwalk has been putting money into the jail accounts of the detainees so that they can call their children and attorneys.
St. Paul’s and Hola are both collecting donations. You can donate on St. Paul’s website. I have not checked out Hola’s yet. America’s Voice/Sandusky website has a petition you can sign denouncing ICE raids.

We have such a wonderful DREAM for Tiffin. We truly want Tiffin to be a town in which the residents–all residents–feel visible, important to the operation of a town.
I’m reading NEW POWER by Jeremy Heimans and Henry Timms. Here is a review quote from Amazon. “For most of human history, the rules of power were clear: power was something to be seized and then jealously guarded. This “old power” was out of reach for the vast majority of people. But our ubiquitous connectivity makes possible a different kind of power. “New power” is made by many. It is open, participatory, and peer-driven. It works like a current, not a currency–and it is most forceful when it surges. The battle between old and new power is determining who governs us, how we work, and even how we think and feel.”
I find the book fascinating and a model of how we want Tiffin4Peace to work….Please try our site: @Tiffin4Peace and follow us and be one who is helping to make Tiffin be the “dream” city we want it to be for ALL its people.
Thanks. sr. Paulette
