The Rev. Shalom Agtarap is pastor of First United Methodist Church in Ellensburg, Washington. She and her congregation are at the center of the community's response to a series of immigration arrests by federal agents and local law enforcement officials on January 20, 2011. Churches in Ellensburg, a university town east of the Cascade Mountains, formed the nucleus of a local group organized to support the affected families.
