The backbone of our advocacy work is done by the Organizing Committee, which is made up of Immigrant Welcoming Congregtions. Individuals and groups within a congregation join this commitee and work with our Immigration Program (and an extensive network of allies and friends) to push for pro-immigrant legislation at the local, state and federal level. It is hard, but inspiring work.
Consider joining us as an Immigrant Welcoming Congregation (IWC). Read how at the bottom of the page. We are united by our common mission.
We are an interfaith coalition called to challenge faith communities and leaders through education, advocacy, and action to live in compassionate solidarity with immigrants.
We will educate all people about the failures of our nation’s current immigration system. Through this transformative education, we will stand together as one prophetic voice demand the most just and humane immigration policies necessary to ensure that not just our religious community, but our nation, is a sanctuary of peace and justice for all people.
We believe in the dignity of all persons, regardless of their national origin. Together we will bear the fruit of Sanctuary: Justice, Unity, Physical and Emotional Safety, Equality, Solidarity and Peace.
This is a list of organizations and congregations that are IWCs.
