  • The U.S. immigration system's history of racial exclusion and how it plays out today.
  • The theology and practice of accompaniment.
  • Real life examples through case-studies.
  • Practical skills in three streams: ICE/court accompaniment, congregational sanctuary, and immigration detention/prison visitation.
