Grace — Farewell Blog

4 Aug

Steph and I both agree that this job has been the best we’ve ever worked, and we’re really sad to go.  I’ve felt sick the past two days and I think it’s because I’m stressed about leaving.  If I could rearrange the world I’d put Centreville, Virginia and Perkiomenville, Pennsylvania within five minutes’ driving distance of each other.

The summer is wrapping up nicely.  Everything is in place for the August fundraising campaign and we hope Centreville Immigration Forum’s relationship with the National Day Labor Organizing Network (NDLON) continues to grow.  NDLON has workshops and activities for the workers which we hope will continue to strengthen and empower the immigrant day labor community.  I truly hope the work Steph and I have done will prove useful when the Center opens.

I want to thank everyone who made this summer possible — no, incredible! — for us, and I especially want to thank everyone who has supported and will continue our work in our absence.  I want to thank everyone who extended their friendship, love and kindness, who made this community feel like a home away from home, and who helped us mentally process the challenges we faced this summer.

Every face I’ve met this summer remains close to my heart.  Steph and I hope to return for the opening festivities!

Que le vaya bien,
