Immigration Resource Page
This page provides resources to get informed and take action on immigration injustices. The members of our Immigration Team, with support from our Social Mission Intern, recommend these resources as a starting point for those interested in understanding and advocating for immigration reform. We hope these will open the door to or further support you in your journey towards justice for migrants.

A Franciscan Blessing
May God bless you with discomfort at easy answers, half truths, and superficial relationships, so that you will live deep in your heart
May God bless you with anger, injustice, oppression, and exploitation of people in the earth so that you will work for justice, equity, and peace.
May God bless you with tears to shed for those who suffer so you will reach out your hand to comfort them and change their pain into joy,
And may God bless you with the foolishness to think that you can make a difference in the world so you will do things which others say cannot be done.
