November 9, 2016 – Message from the IIIC.
The election results are in and it is clear that our work has never been more important than it is now. Now more than ever, the IIIC is committed to serving vulnerable immigrant families, and young Irish men and women on our J-1 program.
We are proud of our work and our mission. We are dedicated to building bridges, and building community day-in and day-out. We will continue working for a society where all are welcomed and valued, and enjoy equal opportunities and protections.
Sister Lena often talked about hope. Now is the time for us to remain hopeful. We stand together and recall the words of Doctor Martin Luther King, Jr., “We must accept finite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope.”
