“We recognize that we cannot be all that we are called to be if someone is bullied, mocked, intimidated, oppressed, diminished in any way, because of unjust policies or laws, those excluded because of race, religion.”

The statewide group is starting committees to organize legal resources, job security, and sanctuary spaces for undocumented immigrants.
