On this World Refugee Day, Episcopal Migration Ministries and The Episcopal Church Office of Government Relations invite you to join in the work of welcome through advocating for our newest neighbors!
Join us for Love God, Love Neighbor: Episcopal Month of Action, a series of webinars to learn and advocate with and on behalf of immigrants, DACA recipients, refugees, and asylum seekers.
Newcomers contribute greatly to U.S. communities, enriching our common life, strengthening the U.S. economy, and bringing joy as they join and reunite with families and friends. And yet, immigrants, asylum seekers, and refugees face a wide array of challenges, including federal policies and legislation that are outdated and do not address the realities of immigrants in America today. As the Episcopal Branch of the Jesus Movement, we are called to advocate with and for our siblings seeking safety and a better life in the United States.

June 14-20: Episcopal Action on Resettlement Week
June 21-27: Episcopal Action on Asylum Week
WEBINAR: June 23, 3:30-5:00pm Eastern Time

Download the Love God, Love Neighbor: Take Action on Resettlement Toolkit and learn how you can show your support for the children, women, and men forced to flee. World Refugee Day marks a day we lift up the courage, strength, and perseverance of refugees worldwide. As people of faith invested in the work of welcome, we have to utilize our stories to ensure that elected officials promote and maintain our nation’s admirable tradition of refugee resettlement and implement humane and just immigration policies.
