Dear Columban Advocate,

Don’t forget to join the 2017 Summer of Action webinar this afternoon at 4 PM EST!

5 Ways We Can Defund the Detention and Deportation Machine

Monday July 10th at 4 PM ET or 1 PM PT


Right now, we have the opportunity to empower our legislators to resist a budget designed to escalate the attack on our neighbors who are immigrants and refugees.

Join the Interfaith Immigration Coalition for a webinar to learn about five ways we can defund the deportation machine together. During this webinar, we will walk you through tangible actions you can take each week from July through August so that Congress hears from communities of faith loudly and boldly throughout the summer.

The webinar will outline how you can….

  1. Attend town halls and public events with your Members of Congress to make your voice heard.
  2. Call and tweet your Members of Congress and request visits from their local offices.
  3. Write an opinion editorial or letter to the editor in support of funding that protects immigrants and refugees.
  4. Meet with your Member of Congress over August recess.
  5. Host a vigil, rally, or public event that showcases support for immigrants and refugees in your community.
