Ministry Partners: IMIrJ Interfaith Movement for Immigrant Justice

Organizations sharing this space, improving lives throughout the community

Hillsboro United Methodist Church is more than just a congregation that meets on Sunday mornings. This building is buzzing all week long with many community organizations across the community. Though these “ministry partners” as we like to consider them, are each autonomous organizations, we are proud of the work they are doing and happy to support one another.

IMIrJ, the Interfaith Movement for Immigrant Justice accompanies and quips communities and people of faith to advance immigrant justice through direct accompaniment of immigrants facing detention and deportation, policy advocacy at local, state and national levels, and prophetic action.  Founded in 2006, IMIrJ is in relationship with leaders from over 140 congregations throughout the state of Oregon.  HUMC members have joined IMIrJ vigils at the Sheridan Federal Detention Center and in Hillsboro.  Monthly vigils are held at the Washington County Courthouse on the second Monday of every month.  Quarterly meetings are held at area churches on the first Monday of the month.
