Proyecto Pastoral to Launch Immigration-Related Rights Network

Proyecto Pastoral at Dolores Mission in Los Angeles recently released the following letter from Chief Executive Officer Cynthia Sanchez, announcing the establishment of The Boyle Heights and Eastside Immigrants Rights Network. Proyecto Pastoral is a community building organization whose mission is to provide training, education, and social services in the Pico-Aliso/Boyle Heights district of East Los Angeles through five community-based programs.


Dear Friends,

The start of 2017 has already been filled with a lot of uncertainty and fear in our community. Proyecto Pastoral, Promesa Boyle Heights, and dozens of community partners have been learning and getting ready to organize and push back against draconian immigration policies and practices.

In the past two months, our Promesa Boyle Heights partners and Proyecto Pastoral staff have led multiple Know Your Rights trainings for parents, convened educators and partners, and created new tools for supporting residents, schools, and organizations.  

Promesa Boyle Heights is getting ready to launch the Boyle Heights and Eastside Immigrant Rights Network. The Immigrant Rights Network will focus on ensuring the safety and wellbeing of immigrant individuals and families through broad know-your-rights information and connection to legal services and wellness supports. The Network will also work on ensuring that community organizations and institutions are prepared to respond to community needs. We have also joined forces with regional and national allies to stay informed and take action.

You can find our resources on the Promesa Boyle Heights website

There are many ways to help. If you are an organization in the Eastside, you can join the network.

There are also involvement opportunities for individuals.

To learn more, contact Promesa Boyle Heights Director Deycy Hernandez at dhernandez@proyectopastoral.org or (323) 881-1769.

In solidarity,

Cynthia Sanchez
Chief Executive Officer
