Webinar series regarding immigration

The US Conference of Catholic Bishops is marking the 15th anniversary of its Justice for Immigrants (JFI) campaign with a webinar series that will focus on key areas of migration policy for the purpose of educating Catholics and others of goodwill on some of the key moral and political issues in this arena.  

Each Wednesday at 2:00 p.m. until November 12, a webinar will focus on a distinct issue in the migration field.  These webinars will explore some of the current hopes and challenges in JFI’s efforts to influence policy with the light of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. According to JFI, “We will discuss ways in which we can move forward together as a Church to ensure that migration policies more adequately reflect Catholic social teaching. We will examine how the upcoming election might affect our work as a people seeking to uphold migrant dignity.”
