As Bobby Trice noted during his MIDWEEK practice on October 28, Quakers have often carried concerns about justice, some of which have led them to lobby for change. One concern for many Quakers and others right now is that in these difficult times, our undocumented siblings are especially vulnerable to political attack.
In this practice, we'll build from Bobby's practice to learn how to leverage our stories and testimony to convince our elected representatives in Congress to take action toward recognizing human dignity, reflect/share your experiences with immigration, and take some the first steps toward supporting undocumented people in your state.
