The Diocese of Atlanta is hosting an educational session and dialogue about immigration in Child Hall on Saturday, May 11, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The session will start with an overview of the U.S. immigration system, common immigration myths and concerns, and a description of what immigration reform could look like. Many U.S.-born Americans are not well versed on the U.S. immigration system; hence, it’s important to cover this “head” knowledge before engaging in dialogue to get into the heart of the matter.
Next, the session will bring people together in small groups to engage in guided dialogue about immigration. The dialogue session uses a short film about immigrant journeys and challenges and will include community members who can share their immigration experience as well as their experience working with immigrant communities.
The event is $10 per person and includes lunch. A donation will also be taken to support the ministry of El Refugio and Just Faith Ministries in their work with immigrants.
