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.
This event in the Immigration & the 2020 Election series will explore the realties throughout the phases of the migrant journey: along the US-Mexico border under “zero tolerance” policies, in immigrant detention, and through interior enforcement right here in St. Louis, Missouri. The program will feature speakers Sara John, Executive Director, St. Louis Interfaith Committee on Latin America (IFCLA) and Nicole Cortés, Co-Director and Attorney, Migrant and Immigrant Community Action (MICA) Project.
Co-sponsors: The John C. Danforth Center on Religion and Politics; The Episcopal Diocese of Missouri; The Episcopal Church of the Holy Communion, University City; Interfaith Partnership of Greater St. Louis; The Jewish Community Relations Council; St. Louis Inter-Faith Committee on Latin America (IFCLA).
