Frustrated at what’s happening at our borders but not sure what to do? Vermont Interfaith Action is sponsoring a Solidarity Bike Tour from Wed to Sat, Aug 21 to 24 – 160 miles total from Montpelier to Dover, NH. The ride ends in a 5-mile walk to the Strafford County Jail in Dover, NH. Walkers may join us for the last few miles of the journey. Immigrants arrested by ICE and awaiting deportation are held at this jail. Cyclists will ride 40-50 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 neighbors are facing. In the evenings we will hold educational or prayerful discussions open to the public. For more information, contact melissa@viavt.org. To register go to www.viavt.org.
