LIRS and Other Advocacy Groups Launch the ONWARD Project

Published On: Donate

Onward600When advocacy groups across the nation come together and stand for justice, we accomplish so much more together than we can alone.

I’m proud to announce that LIRS, Sojourners, Active Voice, Welcoming America, and the MacArthur Foundation have come together to create the ONWARD project. ONWARD is a story and data project to help faith-based leaders engage their communities around one of the most pressing issues today: migration. ONWARD will offer films, messaging and framing, resources, stories, and more to help advance discourse on this pertinent issue.

This Friday, Fabio Lomelino, Community Education Facilitator at LIRS; Sahar Driver, Program Director, Active Voice; and Ellen Gallagher, Director of Nonprofit Programs, Welcoming America will come together to premiere the ONWARD Project in a public webinar. The webinar will show how ONWARD advances immigration discourse in communities, work, and churches.

Date: Friday, May 15th
Time: 2p.m. – 2:45p.m. EDT
