The Sojourners community invites you to Take the Matthew 25 Pledge to Stand with Those Most at Risk Under the New Administration. You will receive a full suite of free toolkits and organizing resources in January.
In the meantime, start having the conversations now about how you and your community will respond.
President-elect Donald Trump has threatened to deport 11 million people. Most at risk are the undocumented immigrants who came over as children and their parents. President Barack Obama gave them relief through executive order, but a Trump administration could reverse that. We need to remain vigilant.
Ask your community these questions: What does it mean to protect and stand in solidarity with our immigrant neighbors? What are you willing to do? What are your churches and communities willing to do?
We invite you to reflect on these questions in prayer:
God of all people, in creating us with love you have made us one family. We know that when those in our family hurt or suffer, you hurt too. We know that you walk with those who wander, and call us to welcome those who are seeking shelter. Help us to be strong and steadfast in this effort so that we might reflect your grace to all your children. Amen.
Here is some additional reading from us to help you as you have these important conversations:
