IM4HI in the San Francisco Bay Area

Gala King, IM4HI Regional Organizer, Northern California

In Northern California, we coordinate and support several networks of local faith communities engaged in immigrant justice, which plan events, actions and collective work.

  • East Bay Interfaith Immigration Coalition (EBIIC)
  • Multifaith Immigration Coalition for Action in Contra Costa County (MICA)
  • San Francisco Interfaith Coalition on Immigration (SFICI)
  • Peninsula Interfaith Coalition on Immigration (PICI)

We provide presentations, preaching, educational workshops, and leadership trainings.

We organize monthly Prayer Vigils outside the ICE building in San Francisco and other public acts of witness.

Through our Nueva Esperanza Accompaniment Team, we train congregations to provide direct accompaniment support to individual immigrants

From 2011 to 2018 we organized monthly interfaith prayer vigils outside the West County Detention Facility in Richmond, CA, until the ICE contract there was finally ended in August 2018.
