For decades, faith communities have been on the front lines of immigration justice and refugee resettlement in the United States. The 2020 election may be one of the most consequential elections regarding foreign-born populations in this country. This presents an important opportunity for people of faith and good will to prophetically live into their values through careful discernment and intentional action amidst the complex decisions before us. Join us for the final two sessions of our interfaith webinar series, “Immigration & the 2020 Election,” as faith leaders and experts come together to discuss existing policies, the global crisis, and the role of religious institutions and individuals.
