There are over 68.5 million forcibly displaced people in the world today, the highest level ever recorded. 25.4 million are refugees. Over half of all refugees are children.
Episcopal Migration Ministries (EMM) is The Episcopal Church's foremost response to this refugee crisis, welcoming thousands of refugees to the United States each year. Today, our ministry of welcome faces grave challenges.
We need your help to continue this work of saving lives and restoring hope.
Registration is now open for our next Love God, Love Neighbor training in Louisville, Kentucky, October 11-13, 2018.
Love God, Love Neighbor is a three-day training that equips participants to be advocates, allies, and ambassadors for refugees and the ministry of refugee resettlement. Offered by Episcopal Migration Ministries, with funding from the Constable Fund, the training provides an in-depth exploration of the global displacement crisis, US refugee policy, the refugee resettlement process, faith-based advocacy for refugees, and organizing to welcome and support refugees in your home community.
The gathering brings together people not only from across The Episcopal Church, but also from ecumenical and lay partners to learn from one another as we explore different local contexts as they relate to refugee resettlement. The result is an invaluable opportunity to build community and relationships that continue on after the training ends.
Registration closes August 31, 2018.
