On this week’s show of JustLove, Monsignor Kevin Sullivan talks about support and standing in solidarity with those who are suffering because of the immigration enforcement policies and also gerrymandering and what it means in elections.
Father Esteban Sanchez, Administrator of Assumption Church in Peekskill, accompanied Msgr. Sullivan and others on June 21st on an interfaith mission of prayer, support and solidarity to those suffering from recent shifts in immigration enforcement policy down to McAllen, Texas. Fr. Esteban shares his experiences with visiting children and families at the Catholic Charities Respite Center a few miles from the United States border with Mexico.

Musgrove, Founder and Executive Director of “Voters for a Voice”, talk to Msgr. Sullivan about gerrymandering, and what “Voters for a Voice” is doing to overcome partisan gerrymandering. The “Voters for a Voice” is a group dedicated to ending partisan gerrymandering.
