Since the 2016 election, diverse congregations and faith-based organizations have stepped up to defend the newest New Yorkers by advocating for immigrants’ rights and immigration reform. New York’s immigrant communities are still under threat, but recent changes in Albany offer an opportunity for real and lasting change. The time for action is now. This conference will support the work of faith leaders and immigration activists, through civic engagement and advocacy training.
Following the conference, participating congregations and organizations will organize their own programs, events, or campaigns for immigrants’ rights or immigration reform. Working together, across faith lines, we will catalyze a city-wide wave of multifaith action for immigrants’ rights.
