For the past year, the Ministry of Immigration Partnership convened through the diocesan Office of Canon for Immigration and Multicultural Ministries has been involved in advocating improved conditions for asylum seekers at the U.S. southern border and many other immigration matters. This work took these ministry partners to different parts of the diocese for educational workshops and to Washington, D.C., to meet with members of Congress and their staffers.
Some people may be unsure about getting involved in public policy advocacy. Even for those who are comfortable with it, creating a strategy can be a complicated process. And so, the Ministry of Immigration Partnership invites all to join this online two-hour training to learn about advocacy and relationship building with elected officials, and how to use your voice, your keyboard and your pen to push for better laws and policies. This training will be given by The Episcopal Church’s Office of Government Relations, which leads our church’s federal-level advocacy.
Although the event is free, pre-registration is required to receive an e-mail the day prior to the event with the link to join via Zoom.
