Holy Week/ Passover Resources on Immigration

Holy Week and Passover are extremely important times for people of faith that help us reflect anew upon how our faith values inform our life journey. This year’s recognition of such important historical and traditional periods come at a critical point in the push for compassionate immigration reform wherein a bill is expected to be released in the Senate very soon. As the we together work to mobilize our faith communities, please consider integrating the importance of immigrant justice to some of our most important rites as we continue to build a movement of faithful people organizing for  compassionate immigration reform.
