  • Call in Number 805-399-1000 , Code 104402
  • Please RSVP for the visual portion of the webinar

As we approach Thanksgiving, we remember the farmworkers that grow and prepare our food throughout the year. On this webinar, we will give an overview of the “Ag Act,” a bill in the House of Representatives that would negatively impact farmworkers. We will also discuss the escalating push for the House of Representatives to pass an immigration reform bill before the end of the year.

You will take away specific ideas your congregation can incorporate into a worship or a prayer service and into your Thanksgiving meal to educate about and act against the Ag Act. You will also learn about opportunities to continue to push for immigration reform in your community.
