Public Charge 101 for Faith Communities – Webinar

Sep 24, 2019

Interfaith Immigration Coalition, in which the ELCA participates, will present a primer on the new public charge rule and its impact on vulnerable families. The webinar is scheduled for Tuesday, September 24 from 2 – 3 p.m. (EST).  Register to hear the presentation.

Are you getting questions from members of your congregation or community about whether or not enrolling in SNAP or Medicaid will harm their immigration status? Experts from the Interfaith Immigration Coalition and the Interreligious Coalition on Domestic Human Needs will describe the recent changes to public charge policy and what you need to know to work with immigrant families in your faith congregation or community. We will also share resources, analysis, talking points and how you can get more involved in helping immigrant community members navigate the public charge policy.

Sr. Simone Campbell SSS, Executive Director of NETWORK Lobby for Catholic Social Justice will moderate the hour-long webinar. She will be joined by Charles Wheeler, Director of Training and Legal Support, Catholic Legal Immigration Network (CLINIC) and Liza Lieberman, Director of Public Policy, MAZON: A Jewish Response to Hunger.
