    Resources on Immigration Reform Available

    In partnership with Rev. Aundreia Alexander, Esq., national coordinator of Refugee Resettlement and Immigration Services of American Baptist Home Mission Societies, we have provided a listing of resources and other helpful articles on issues around immigration and immigration reform on our website. You’ve heard about immigration issues in the news and have most likely had conversations with friends and relatives about these issues; it’s time for our churches to study and pray about it as well. Consider making use of these resources and others in your Christian education program at your church and in your women’s ministries gatherings. Middle and high school-aged girls’ groups would love to dig into meaningful conversations about the DREAM Act and immigration reform’s impact on children and youth. You’ll find resources at our website at: http://www.abwministries.org/resources/resource.cfm?ResourceID=1126.

    To hear an excellent conversation between AB Women’s Ministries executive director Virginia Holmstrom and Rev. Aundreia Alexander on issues of immigration, especially on its impact on women and children, listen to episode 24, “Immigration and Women”, of our podcast series, “In Their Shoes: Women Walking with Women Worldwide.” http://www.intheirshoespodcast.org/2011/10/17/episode-24-immigration-and-women-with-aundreia-alexander-10-17-11/. (You can stream the episode directly from the webpage or you can find it in iTunes; search the iTunes music store for “In Their Shoes: Women Walking with Women Worldwide” and click on episode 24.)
