Bishop Riley on Advocacy

Published On: Donate

Hosted by LIRS, the Lutheran Immigration Leadership Summit brought together ministry leaders from three Lutheran denominations who have continually committed themselves and their communities to the mission of welcoming migrants and refugees.

Bishop E. Roy Riley, of the New Jersey Synod of the ELCA, is the LIRS Board Chair and Executive Committee Chair. In a conversation during the summit he acknowledged the necessity for Lutheran leaders to gather in the nation’s capital on an annual basis and to be “relentless” in their efforts to work with political leaders to enact change.

You can help LIRS enact change that helps maintain America’s welcoming tradition by donating on our website and visiting our action center to let Washington know you support the DREAM Act and comprehensive immigration reform.
