Immigration continues to be a hot topic on the news and in the pews. As North Carolina continues to experience demographic changes, one of the main questions facing our ministries is how to respond to our new neighbors. This free 45-minute webinar will take a look at innovative ways to communicate about immigration issues with your congregation or community group, helping to transform the conversation from a political context to a religious and values-based context.
Our guest speaker is Lori Fernald Khamala, director of the North Carolina immigrant rights program for the American Friends Service Committee in Greensboro. A native of Charlotte, she studied Spanish at Guilford College and spent time in Guadalajara, Mexico. She spent nearly eight years advocating for the rights of migrant and seasonal farmworkers in North Carolina and mobilizing the faith and secular community to support the struggle for farmworker justice. Currently, she is working to combat the anti-immigrant rhetoric so prevalent today, to involve the broader community in creating a more welcoming and compassionate environment for immigrants in our community, and to support fair and humane immigration policy at local, state and national levels.
