Support the Migrant Caravan: A Resource Kit

December 3, 2018 | We have been deeply encouraged by the many of you who are seeking (and finding) ways of responding to the migrant caravan.

We've compiled here some ways you and your church might get involved -- from simple ideas such as providing financial support to more challenging ones like acts of resistance along the border.

Photos of our children

December 3, 2018 | Whose children are in the photos from the border? If we believe that God is the Creator of the entire human family, then these are photos of our children. Our national immigration debate has suffered from the syndrome of “on the other hand…”  Yes, the suffering migrants, but on the other hand, the security of our borders!

A call to the international community from the churches and faith-based organizations regarding the current plight of the Honduran migrant caravan

November 27, 2018 | The association “Juntos por La Dignidad Humana” (United for Human Dignity) comprised of different Christian churches, theological institutions, and faith-based organizations, is making this call out of respect, solidarity, and humanitarian support for the exodus of the Central American migrants that find themselves crossing Mexico and who will shortly be reaching the United States of America. We encourage both the Mexican government and United States' government, as well as international institutions, to provide the needed attention and protection to the thousands of Central American brothers and sisters who have opted to leave behind their countries in search of a better future for their families. It is of utmost importance that we implement new plans to face this contingency and any others that could arise to guarantee protection for all the families that decide to undertake this journey.
