The NBA, in conversation and collaboration with ministry partners, continues to uplift the issues facing immigrant families in our church and beyond. In response to the passing of GA-1723, the church has been present as activists, advocates, conversation partners and educators to emphasize the importance of the issues related to immigration and detention. There have also been calls to congregations, regions, general ministries and individuals to specific actions.
Please join us for two upcoming webinars focused on the realities of immigrant families in the U.S. The first will discuss the psychological and spiritual trauma these families and communities experience as they live through the uncertainty of migration, detention, deportation. The second will shed light on the U.S. prison system as it prioritizes the incarceration and detention of the most vulnerable populations coming to the U.S. for a better life. Please share this information with your networks and encourage them to learn more about the facing Disciples across the country.
