UCC Conference Ministers Mobilizing on Immigration | September 2019

Justice and Witness Ministries is excited to welcome Conference Ministers from across the United Church of Christ for days of advocacy and action here in Washington DC. This month, we will be hosting 22 Conference Ministers from September 24 - 26 to join us in advocating around the topic of immigration. The United Church of Christ is an Immigrant Welcoming Church, honoring the profound struggles migrants who come to the United States face in search of security and opportunity, and celebrating the myriad contributions migrants offer to our communities. Conference Ministers will meet with legislators and ask them to cease funding for detention, deportation, and border militarization.

 

Read the letter signed by 25 of our UCC Conference Ministers to Congress. 

We asked our congregations to send us stories of how they have personally felt the impact of changes in legislation around immigration. Read the powerful stories that have been shared with us so far.
