Clergy breakfast on immigration Wednesday at Hood

The NC Council of Churches is continuing its statewide series of clergy breakfasts on immigration at Hood Theological Seminary on Wednesday, Oct. 23, 8-9:30 a.m. These events are geared towards busy religious professionals and faith leaders, and provide an overview of immigration issues in the context of a networking event. To date, more than 600 North Carolina clergy and faith leaders have participated in this series. The discussion will include updates on immigration, including legislation and local issues, ways to get involved and planning next steps.
The event will be held in the refectory on the seminary campus at 1810 Lutheran Synod Drive. Breakfast will be provided free but reservations are required. You may go to the web at http://www.ncchurches.org/event/clergy-breakfast-immigration-salisbury to learn more and register for the event.
Since its inception more than 75 years ago, the council has been actively pursuing a platform of peace and social justice across the state. Their work for immigrant rights focuses on providing faith-based resources for congregations to think and speak theologically about our encounters with our new neighbors. At the same time, they are helping to mobilize people of faith, connecting them with grassroots movements and legislative efforts to empower immigrants here in North Carolina.
