Join the Interfaith Immigration Coalition for this webinar to learn how communities of faith can participate in “Dream Sabbath” events that lift up the stories, contributions, and leadership of Dreamers in worship services, vigils, and in communication with their members of Congress.

  • Monday, October 2, 4:00 PM (EDT) / 1:00 PM (PDT)
  • (202) 602-1295, Access code: 354-977-836#
  • RSVP

We will also share the latest news and actions on the refugee and travel ban, discuss actions in response to the unprecedented low Presidential cap for refugee resettlement next year just announced this week, cover details about a week of action to stand with recipients of Temporary Protected Status (TPS) upcoming in later October, and provide other key updates.

Faith communities have played a huge role in ensuring protections for immigrants and refugees. Learn how you can continue to influence these important decisions!
