Resources for Churches
It is a critical moment for refugee resettlement and welcome, and the voices of the faith community have never been more needed. Episcopal congregations and Episcopalians are encouraged to join in the faithful ministry of advocacy through the work of the Episcopal Public Policy Network. If you are not a member of the Episcopal church, you may be interested in lifting your voice through the work of the Interfaith Immigration Coalition or Refugee Council USA.

My Neighbor is Muslim
This study guide was created by LIRS (Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service) for local congregations or other discussion groups to open up a much needed dialogue and build understanding about Islam in local churches and communities.
This Welcoming America toolkit provides promising practices to counter anti-refugee and anti-Muslim backlash and work towards a positive vision for our communities. These promising practices demonstrate how building meaningful contact between diverse populations, positive communications strategies, and engaging civic and community leaders can help create a climate in which all people can thrive.
