Migrant Journey Simulation Training
Many of our congregational leaders who attended the National Youth Gathering have been asking about duplicating the AMMPARO Migrant Journey simulation that was conducted in the Interactive Center in Houston, Texas. Alaide Vilchis Ibarra from the ELCA Advocacy Office has agreed to travel from Washington, DC to St. Peter’s in Lancaster on Saturday, October 13, to train leaders to do this simulation in their own contexts.
The Lower Susquehanna Synod has graciously agreed to provide the funds needed for this training. This event is for anyone who wishes to be able to lead the simulation and learn more about migration from Central America to the United States. You will be able to take home resources to help facilitate the simulation and discussions. RSVP to Sister Dottie Almoney. Lunch provided (free-will offering will be taken to help offset cost of meal).
The event will be held at St. Peter’s Lutheran Church, 10 Delp Road, Lancaster, on October 13 from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. Consider inviting your lawmakers. You can find their contact information here.
