Washington Memo 2019 Year in Review: Migrants

Together we advocated towards dignity and rights for migrants.

A local congregation speaks out

What happens when a congregation asks for resourcing on how to advocate on immigration? Our office responds!

In October, Tammy Alexander traveled to Riverside, California, to speak at Madison Street Church, a Brethren in Christ congregation. She gave a sermon about immigration advocacy and spoke about federal spending issues during the Sunday School hour.

The next day, Tammy accompanied 11 members of Madison Street to Rep. Mark Takano’s local office where the group shared their personal experiences with immigration and their opposition to more immigration enforcement and border militarization.

Invite us to speak at your church or to accompany a group to a local congressional office! Email us at mccwash@mcc.org
