Episcopal Asylum & Detention Ministry Network

Asylum & Detention Ministry Network

EMM hosts an Asylum and Detention Ministry Network that meets virtually on the fourth Wednesday of every month. The Ministry Network’s collaborative work and conversation focus on best practice-sharing in areas of direct service, organizing, advocacy actions, Christian formation and worship resources, and community education to protect asylum, promote humane and dignified alternatives to detention, and to support asylum seekers and those harmed by the immigration detention system. Register to attend meetings here. All are welcome to attend.

Are you interested in learning more about the Ministry Network? There are many opportunities to get involved, beyond the monthly Zoom gatherings. There are several Ministry Network subgroups that gather around a particular area of interest or activity. All are welcome at subgroup meetings.

“I frequently participate in EMM’s Asylum & Detention Ministry monthly Zooms,
and I have found this to be a terrific way to plug into migration concerns and projects all over the US.
At the same time,
we are able to bring to others’ attention
the issues that are key in our region. I also really value the spiritual enrichment
side of the network meetings, which remind us to reflect
on how our activism is linked to our deepest beliefs and commitments.” – Jack Lloyd
