ISAIAH’s Campaign for Citizenship Launch

ISAIAH’s Campaign for Citizenship Launch

ISAIAH is launching a new Citizenship Campaign on Thursday, February 21 in West Saint Paul.

As people of faith, we believe in the inherent dignity of all God’s children, and we practice welcoming the stranger and protecting the poor and marginalized. Every human being has sacred worth and is created in the image of God.

Our faith and our values call us to work to expand the circle of human concern and to create shared prosperity, wholeness and health for all people. It is morally unacceptable that millions of immigrant families – people who are committed to this country – are unable to fully live out their God-given gifts.

A robust national debate over immigration is underway. This week both the President and eight Senators representing both parties released ambitious immigration reform proposals. We have never been so close to creating a roadmap to citizenship for 11 million aspiring Americans.  We as people of faith have a powerful role to play to make this a reality.

Now is the time for people of faith to act:

  • Call your representatives today.

    • Call 888-979-7506 to be connected to your U.S. Senator or Congressional Representative. Tell them you support creating a just pathway to citizenship.
  • Circulate a petition in your congregation.

    • Click here to download and share the petition.
  • Join us for the launch of ISAIAH’s Citizenship Campaign.

Faith leaders will come together to hear stories, learn, and develop strategies to advance a pathway to citizenship for thousands of Minnesotans.

Thursday, February 21, 2013; 7:00-9:00 pm
St. Stephan’s Lutheran Church, 1575 Charlton St., West St. Paul 55118

  • If you have an interest in learning about ways you and your congregation can get involved in the Citizenship Campaign or to register for the launch, visit the ISAIAH event registration page.

You can read here an article published by the Minneapolis Star Tribune on January 30, 2013, announcing the formation of a new coalition to support immigration reform.  ISAIAH is a member of this coalition.
