Sujitno Is Free

The afternoon of May 31 marked a celebration of Sujitno and Dahlia Sajuti’s freedom to return home to West Hartford after 599 days in sanctuary at our church. Sujitno’s legal team has secured assurance from ICE (Immigration & Customs Enforcement) that they no longer have jurisdiction over Sujitno and Dahlia’s case and will no longer pursue them. This victory is communal. The outcome speaks for the power of working together with perseverance. The march toward justice is a marathon, not a sprint. Sujitno and Dahlia are now able to observe the rest of Ramadan with their own faith community.
