Dr. Steve Pavey leads workshop at Englewood Christian Church, Indianapolis, IN
Immigration is one of today’s most pressing issues, one on which there is much fear, misunderstanding and tension. We believe that in the church community – where, despite our ethnic heritages, we are brothers and sisters – we can begin to untangle the misunderstandings and seek justice and reconciliation together. We hope that you will be able to join us for this important conversation – in English and Spanish – on the church and immigration.
Out of the Shadows and Into the Light: A Conversation with Dreamers on the Dream Act
This workshop moves the weekend conversation on church and immigration into a conversation with immigrant youth and their allies around our activism fighting for the Dream Act. You will learn about the Dream Act that would provide a path toward citizenship for the nearly 2.1 undocumented children and youth living in the US today. More important, you will be challenged to enter into relationship with and learn from immigrant youth themselves to break down barriers that keep us living as strangers.
