Call to Action on Comprehensive Immigration Reform

The General Assembly of the National Council of Churches and Church World Service, meeting in New Orleans this week, will give consideration to a resolution that calls for action on comprehensive immigration reform. The resolution, among other things, calls for a “New Year’s Resolution Campaign” asking people of faith to make personal New Year’s resolutions to urge Congress to pass immigration reform legislation in 2011. Jennifer Riggs, Director of Refugee and Immigration Ministries (RIM) serves on the NCC/CWS General Assembly Immigration Task Force that sponsored this resolution. RIM is a program of Disciples Home Missions supported by Week of Compassion.
