CPT International: London: Migrant Justice: CPT European Convergence joins vigil



Europe ConvergenceOn 15 May, participants at the annual CPT European Convergence held in London, England, joined other international religious peace activists for a public vigil at the UK Home Office (in charge of immigration).  They drew attention to the 1,800 migrants and refugees who have died in the Mediterranean Sea so far this year and the British government’s culpability in these deaths.  Last summer, CPT Europe maintained a small team of Reservists and volunteers on the Greek island of Lesbos to document the treatment of migrants at ports, courts, and refugee reception centers.  This summer, CPT Europe will organize peacemaker delegations to accompany refugees who have crossed from Turkey to Greece.  For more information, contact program@cpt.org.

Will you host a dinner party for CPT?

CPT really needs your support in raising $10k in September. Unfortunately, we are behind our financial targets and need your help. We want to dedicate the month of September to bringing people together around the dinner table. You can choose the date, who you invite and what you cook (though our teams have some great recipes prepared!) We’d love to hear if you’d be interested. 

There’s no commitment needed at this stage.
