Central American Refugee Caravan: How do we ensure a moral and lawful response?

Sunday, December 9, 12:30pm

The Reconciling and Social Justice Team of First United Methodist Church is hosting an event titled, "Central American Refugee Caravan: How do we ensure a moral and lawful response?" While many faith traditions and people of conscience are called to welcome the stranger, we will also highlight our legal responsibility to those who are seeking asylum. And we have a moral responsibility because of the role our taxes and government have played in creating the unsafe and unstable conditions in Central America that these people are seeking refuge from. It will include a presentation and discussion led by Dr. Duane Campbell, CSUS Prof. Emeritus of Education and Cori Ring-Martinez, activist and volunteer with U.S. El Salvador Sister Cities. Both are active locally on immigration rights issues.
