This year, the NC Council of Churches is continuing its successful statewide series of “Clergy Breakfasts” on immigration. These events are geared towards busy religious professionals and faith leaders, and they provide an overview of immigration issues in the context of a great networking event (and free breakfast)!
Below is the information for first two of five breakfasts that will be taking place across the state (more in the Western part of the state coming in November). This “clergy breakfast” series on immigration revolves around sharing a meal together and hearing from knowledgeable people who are directly affected by immigration issues in their ministries. It’s a forum for honest questions and positive conversation among local colleagues, and everyone will walk away with additional resources and contacts. Please help us spread the word about the upcoming clergy breakfast on immigration. We need your help to make this event a success.
