AFSC is asking meetings/churches to partner with us on supporting our program work around immigrant justice. One way to support the immigrants rights movement is to to learn how your meeting can be an affective ally to immigrants in your area.
Listen to Lucy Duncan on the origins of the immigrant ally program focus area (1:03).
