Join us for our next round of trainings in Springfield at Trinity Church, 361 Sumner Ave., Springfield
The Pioneer Valley Workers Center's Sanctuary in the Streets (SiS) network seeks build the trust and solidarity needed to confront injustice. Through SiS's solidarity programs, we provide direct support to worker leaders to promote organizing.Join our network through participating in our Rideshare and/or Accompaniment programs! In order to be part of this network, you must join us for one of our orientations.
We request that you attend the Rideshare training BEFORE attending the Court Accompaniment training. If you've already been trained for Rideshare, you can sign up for accompaniment only. You can attend Rideshare training only or do both of these training on either of the two available dates. Please see below for signup information!
RIDESHARE:Driving is essential, but many of our members are not able to drive for a variety of reasons. Rideshare drivers participate in a one-hour training and are then notified of opportunities to drive community leaders when needed. Rides support PVWC worker members organizing for justice, and also support Lucio Perez and his family during this time in sanctuary. The community counts on this vital support.

PVWC Court AccompanimentMany PVWC immigrant members are fighting immigration cases and have regular ICE check-in appointments and court dates. Our Court Accompaniment volunteers provide support in these stressful times by attending the appointment or court date with immigrant community members. We have received many requests recently for this solidarity support--please attend this one hour training and join our team! Email contact firstname.lastname@example.org
