Event description
People of faith will join our voices together in a meaningful - and politically impactful - day at the Capitol to advance immigrant justice.

About this Event

Join people of faith from across Oregon for the Interfaith Movement for Immigrant Justice's first-ever Advocacy Day in Salem!

Drawing on the rich practices, stories and rituals of our various faith traditions, well join our voices together in a meaningful - and politically impactful - day at the Capitol, amplifying the demands and priorities of Oregon's immigrant and refugee communities.

At the same time, we know that passing state policies that will allow Oregonians to live in safe and welcoming communities regardless of their immigration status is more than a one-day affair. We are committed to accompanying your faith community's Sanctuary Team leading up to and beyond April 8th, as we work together to ensure true Sanctuary for All. Learn more about all the ways you and your faith community can engage, here.

WORKING SCHEDULE

Registration (with light breakfast) will begin at 8:00am. At 9:00 we will join together in a powerful interfaith worship service, grounding ourselves in the stories, songs and rituals of our diverse traditions. At 10:00 we will explore the connections between our sacred faith teachings and our legislative priorities, as we prep our teams to be effective advocates. Then we will make our way to the capitol building for a shared meal, breaking bread together in a sacred and public witness to the more just and humane world we are ushering in. Finally, we will have the opportunity to meet with our legislators. (Don’t worry - we’ll take care of scheduling the meetings and making sure you know exactly where to go when and with whom.) We will wrap up the day by 4:00pm.
