  • Self-Education: To increase our understanding of current immigration/refugee issues.

  • Community Education: To offer awareness activities for the broader community on current immigration/refugee issues.

Current Activities

The Immigration Task Group has been actively advocating and encouraging others to send postcards to their elected officials in Congress to ask them to protect DACA youth and to pass clean DREAM Act bi-partisan legislation by March of 2018.  

Seize every opportunity to have intentional conversations on these important immigration issues within your personal circles of family, friends and co-workers.  Persist in urging Congress and the President to support our DACA youth (Dreamers) and to resolve this issue with “heart.”
