World Refugee Day 2020 | LIRS

Join Us for Virtual Advocacy Day 2021!

This year is a critical year for influencing immigration policies. As advocates, we must ensure that our country’s immigration policies honors God’s love for all people and the dignity of each person. This Day seeks to uphold the legacy of compassion which has made a difference in the lives of thousands of people who have found safety and hope in America’s communities. As we reflect and celebrate the contributions of refugees, we must also inform our legislators of the unique challenges refugees still confront.

Join LIRS’s Virtual Advocacy Day on June 22, 2021, in honor of World Refugee Day, to tell your legislators that we want to see meaningful legislation passed that strengthens our country’s commitment to welcome and protection for those fleeing violence and persecution. This year’s event will be virtual and include trainings with LIRS policy staff and participants from each state. Legislative meetings with elected officials or their staff will be scheduled by LIRS staff and conducted by video or call-in format.

Register today! Refugees, immigrants, Lutheran faith leaders, and staff from LIRS partner organizations are invited to join this event. Please be sure to register by May 17.

Upon registration you will receive updates through email. If you have any questions, contact Diana Guelespe, Refugee Advocacy Officer, at dguelespe@lirs.org.

We hope you can join us for this virtual day of action on behalf of immigrants and refugees!
