International Human Rights Day- A Global Day of Action for the Rights of Migrants, Refugees & Displaced People
La Plaza Park, 500 South C Street, Oxnard, 93030
Immigrants and Diverse Faith Communities come together to share the
Posadas tradition— a retelling of the story of Mary and Joseph as they
seek shelter and welcome. We honor the experience of homelessness and
migration and recognize our common calling to ‘welcome the stranger’.
Together we will shine a light for the urgent need for just and humane
immigration reform and radical welcome.
