Webinar: Loving our Immigrant and Refugee Neighbors in a New Administration

February 9, 2017 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

On January 20, 2017, the Trump administration begins, and we know that this represents a serious danger for our immigrant and refugee communities. To protect the rights and dignity of immigrants and refugees, to keep their families intact, and to make the United States into a welcoming place for all migrants requires all of us working together to take action.

Please join us for the webinar “Loving Our Neighbors in a New Administration.” This webinar will begin with updates from Christy Williams of the Catholic Legal Immigration Network about what to expect in the coming weeks and months and how that could affect immigrants and refugees both at a federal and state level. Then, we will offer concrete ways you and your congregation can speak out and take action alongside our newest immigrant and refugee neighbors. After this we will ask participants to end the call by filling out a short survey about where they are located and how they would like to be involved based on the opportunities offered. It is our hope that we can create coalitions of people of faith who want to work together to create relationships and spaces that will protect, serve, and welcome all of our neighbors. We cannot wait to see what could happen in the coming weeks and months. Instead, we must be proactive and continue to build a powerful movement that is driven locally and organized across North Carolina. Please join us and share with others in your congregation.
