The 2016 Summit promises to accomplish four main goals: Offer a unique statewide, ecumenical gathering for faith leaders who work primarily with immigrant congregations; Help equip these faith leaders to deal with the daily challenges faced by their congregations, especially related to their immigration status; Provide a space for networking and sharing of best practices; Train immigrant rights allies, especially in faith communities, to organize and mobilize around immigration issues.
In particular, this Summit will focus the importance of the upcoming national and state elections and the impact our new elected officials could have on immigrants.
