–Speak up to Help Stop Deportations. On the first day of Black History Month and
amid a global pandemic, immigrants were deported to Haiti. Despite guidance from
the Biden Administration that should have dramatically curtailed deportations,
deportations are continuing at an alarming rate. In the next few days, additional deportations
of almost 1,800 individuals—including children and families—are planned to Honduras,
Haiti, Cameroon, Angola, and other countries. These deportations are not only
cruel and an affront to our faith values, but they also represent a
continuation of abuses, particularly against Black immigrants and asylum
seekers in the U.S. Join a Virtual Press
Conference at noon ET on Wed., Feb. 3 to hear from impacted community
members, immigrant families, and advocates as they call for an end to family
detention and to reunite families. Visit https://www.facebook.com/nakasec. DEMAND THAT
PRESIDENT BIDEN: End Family Detention - Immediately empty and shut down
all family prisons and immediately stop expulsions and deportations of
families. Release families to loved ones or sponsors in the United States.
Reunify families separated by deportation and detention policies under
the past administration, including right to return. Push for an expedited
citizenship path for essential workers and their families, and all 11 million
undocumented immigrants. See https://www.facebook.com/interfaithimmigrationcoalition/.

change needed to create a brighter future for birds and people. Join leaders from the National Audubon
Society for a 2021 Virtual Town Hall event on Wed., Feb. 3 at 7 PM

health leaders better able to address the current COVID-19 “syndemic” − a
combination of a highly infectious virus with the pandemic of non-communicable
diseases that disproportionately afflict those affected by social and economic
inequalities and structural injustices. Since 2017, Frieden has served as
president and CEO of Resolve to Save Lives, an initiative of the global health
organization Vital Strategies, which aims to save millions of lives from
cardiovascular diseases and to prevent epidemics.

professor of internal medicine and public health at the University of Michigan,

public health and COVID-19 responses, both domestically and internationally.
