Immigration is a women's issue! We Belong Together unites women from all walks of life in the fight for common sense policies that treat women and children fairly.

From September 15 - 23, one hundred women will walk on a 100-mile pilgrimage from a detention center in York County, Pennsylvania to Washington, DC. Set to arrive when the Pope will be speaking in Congress and meeting with the President, we will walk carrying stories from a site of human suffering to the Pope with a message of human dignity.

Meet the Walkers

Pope Francis has said that the globalization of migration requires a globalization of charity and cooperation. He describes a world where no one is seen as useless, out of place or disposable, a church without borders, and nations that welcome the stranger.

When he comes to Washington, we will be there to greet him with the hope that each step we take is another step closer to a world of dignity for migrants.
