Aug. 14 LIRS Webinar on Standing Together for Refugees
Aug 14, 2017 @ 1:00 am - 2:00 pm
Join Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service in a convening of national and local leaders from across the country to Stand Together in Support of Refugees. Never has our mission been more urgent – which is why we are calling you to action and asking you to join this brief training webinar on Monday, August 14, 2017 beginning at 1:00 (EST) to learn what you can do to stand together with refugees. This will be a time to join our voices with others in our communities to protect and advocate on behalf of refugees and learn what we can do to fight for and support the U.S. Refugee Admissions Program.
This webinar will empower us to stand together as a community of faithful people, reflect on the most current policies and initiatives impacting refugees and migrants in our country and around the world, listen to the voice of leaders in the field and motivate us to take action during the August 2017 summer recess of government leaders while in their home districts.
Following the webinar, we are asking that you unite together with others in your community and meet with legislators, call elected leaders, and vocalize our support for the United States’ continued leadership in protecting refugees and those in need of protection during the week of August 28ththrough September 1st.
