Action Steps for Congregations

We encourage your congregation/organization to participate in on-going events and programs to initiate dialogue and education around immigration reform that can occur in respectful ways. Here are some suggestions:

  • Attend a showing of the film, The Invisible Chapel, that follows the story of a chapel started by undocumented workers in California that was forced to be demolished. See for more information., 404-622-3399.
  • Invite representatives from any of the In the Light of Love participating organizations to your congregation for an educational forum. Contact
  • Speak and pray about the need for civility and respect around the immigration reform discussion at your weekly services.
  • Sign on to the Declaration on Immigration Reform. Contact
  • Partner with another congregation that serves the immigrant community and allow immigrants to share their personal stories.
