WEBINAR: March 14th at 4pm ET/ 1 PM PT:  Title:  Civic Engagement – A Faithful Call to Stand in Solidarity with Immigrant & Refugee Communities this Election Cycle

RSVP at this LINK

Election season is in full swing and it is critically important for people of faith and organizations that work with immigrant and refugee communities to be engaged in the process of voter engagement. 

So far in this campaign cycle, we have been deeply troubled by examples of vitriolic rhetoric directed at immigrants and refugees. Faith communities have an obligation to engage in the public square to lift up the importance of welcome and inclusion for all people. 

In this webinar, we will learn how congregations and 501(c)(3)s can legally participate in voter registration, education and mobilization activities during this election season. We will also discuss tools and strategies to support and engage immigrant and refugee communities, and to hold local, state and federal candidates accountable for their positions on critical issues like comprehensive immigration reform and refugee resettlement.

Speakers:​

Lindsay Hodel, National Field Director, Nonprofit VOTE

Moe Khant, New American and First Time Voter

Julie Emery, Executive Director of State Voices Virginia Civic Engagement Table

Adamou Mohammed, Grassroots, Organizer Church World Service

Adam Waters, Eisendrath Legislative Assistant, Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism
