Webinar: Broken Families, Broken Souls: The Impact of the U.S. Immigration System on Children and Families
On January 18, we discussed the psychological and spiritual impact current U.S. immigration policies and practices have on the Disciples migrant communities. This webinar explains what trauma is, shares stories of those who’ve experienced immigration trauma, and explores what the church can do to make a difference in the lives of the children and families affected by the broken U.S. immigration system.
