This episode is recorded audio from a recent webinar featuring an update from Policy Advisor Rushad Thomas from The Episcopal Church’s Office of Government Relations. Rushad provides an overview of the migration policy landscape on Capitol Hill. This presentation covers everything from DACA and public charge to refugees and family separation, all with a focus on connecting the Church’s public policy positions back to our baptismal promise to proclaim the Good News of God in Christ, seek and serve Christ in all persons, and respect the dignity of every human being.
