Join the Episcopal Church's Office of Government Relations and Episcopal Migration Ministries on Tuesday, May 19 at 4PM ET for Immigrant Detention during COVID-19: Prophetic Action & Compassionate Response. This seventy-five-minute webinar will include clergy and lay leaders from the Dioceses of Georgia, Ohio, and Western Louisiana with professional and ministry background in different models of detention visitation ministry.
The online presentation will provide viewers with an understanding of our country’s immigration detention system, including reports of inhumane conditions and privately-owned prison facilities; an understanding of the reasons immigrants may be detained and how they may be released; and, a discussion of the current situation in detention facilities during COVID-19.
The webinar will also discuss practical actions that anyone can take to speak out for and respond with compassion to the needs of our siblings in detention. Questions must be emailed before the webinar to email@example.com.
