Upcoming Event: Interfaith Event to Urge for Comprehensive Immigration Reform


New York Faith and Justice is part of the New York State Interfaith Network for Immigration Reform and we are excited to invite you:

On behalf of the New York State Interfaith Network for Immigration Reform, we invite you to attend our interfaith event in support of comprehensive immigration reform legislation, which will be held at 11:30 a.m. on Thursday, February 18th at the Riverside Church, 490 Riverside Drive New York, NY. Our event will include influential New York religious leaders reflecting the religious diversity of our city, as well as key Congressional leaders, and will be one of the most important interfaith programs being organized across the country during the Presidents’ Day Congressional recess in order to increase momentum in favor of immigration reform legislation.

Co-founded by American Jewish Committee, The Interfaith Center of New York, The New York Immigration Coalition, the Presbytery of New York City and UJA/Federation, the Network is a collaboration of diverse New York faith community leaders and organizations that have come together at this critical time in our nation’s history to express our shared commitment to welcoming and honoring the “strangers among us” and our belief that the inhumanity and injustice of our current system require Congress and the Obama Administration to act now to enact reform. Your participation would add great power to our message, and we hope you will be able to join us!
