Building a Better World: In Solidarity with Immigrants and Refugees
On Wednesday evening, October 26, from 5:30-7:00 PM in Broach Hall, we will have the opportunity to learn about two Church World Service-NC programs with which St. John’s has become connected in the past few months.
· One of these—a program for unaccompanied migrant children and their sponsors—is housed at St. John’s and has been providing services since mid-summer.
· The other program is the Greater Charlotte Area Immigrant Solidarity Fund. This program is administered by CWS-NC in collaboration with Comunidad Colectiva, a Charlotte-based and immigrant-led grassroots advocacy and service organization.
Please join us on October 26 to hear from three engaging and enthusiastic young adults who direct the work of these two programs!
