Immigration is one of the most important issues of our time!
Please come to hear from people who KNOW the real issues – either through their work with immigrants and refugees, or, through their lived experience as an immigrant to this country.

➢ Learn about the GRIP organization’s mission and purpose
➢ A representative from Global Refuge (formerly known as Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service) will share important information about who is migrating here and why; and how Global Refuge is working to reunite separated families and resettle refugees
➢ Hear from the mother of a young woman from Reading who worked with migrants traveling through Central America and her experience with them
➢ Get an update from a local immigration attorney regarding immigration laws and policies that affect the lives of immigrant communities
➢ Hear from local young adults who were recipients of a GRIP Dreamer Scholarship, have completed their college educations and are now working and serving their communities in a variety of ways
➢ There will be time for a Q&A session, refreshments and conversation
Please join us for this important informational event!
