The session will start with an overview of the U.S. immigration system, common immigration myths and concerns, and a description of what immigration reform could look like.  Many U.S.-born Americans are not well versed on the U.S. immigration system; hence, it’s important to cover this “head” knowledge before engaging in dialogue to get into the heart of the matter.

Next, the session will bring people together in small groups to engage in guided dialogue about immigration.   The dialogue session uses a short film about immigrant journeys and challenges and will include community members who can share their immigration experience as well as their experience working with immigrant communities.

Please register by May 7. Registration is $10 and includes lunch; a donation will be taken to support El Refugio and Just Faith Ministries in their work with immigrants.

Four contact hours will be awarded for Clergy Continuing Education.
