Albuquerque Delegation Participates in El Camino del Inmigrante

On Aug. 27, we published a post about the participation of Bread for the World staff and volunteers in El Camino del Inmigrante, a 150-mile walk from San Ysidro (across from Tijuana) to Los Angeles. As it turns out, the 150 people who participated in the procession on Aug. 20-30 to raise awareness about issues with the immigration system included three residents of Albuquerque. The walkers from the Duke City are on the staff of  East Central Ministries (ECM). In fact, the slide show at the top of ECM's home page is comprised entirely of scenes from the pilgrimage. Here is a nine-minute video with reflections on the walk, posted by John-Mark Hart. East Central Ministries is one of the endorsing partners of the Interfaith Hunger Coalition.
