Immigration: US - Mexico Border

The Charter for Compassion Social Justice Sector, along with partner organizations, recognizes the need for improved holistic treatment of immigrants and refugees now in the face of international crises like Syria, West Africa, South Sudan, and the United States and in the future when the impact of global climate change will render basic resources increasingly scarce. To this end, we have assembled the Identity, Dignity, and Compassionate Inclusivity Webinar Series.

The purpose of this series is to provide accurate information and first-hand accounts of the international refugee and immigration crisis. We intend to offer this information in an attempt to empower individuals to make informed, compassionate, and care-based decisions regarding the treatment of refugees and immigrants. We hope this individual compassionate empowerment will collectively generate a systematic change in the integration of immigrants and refugees into the communities that welcome them.

This series will provide the platform to:
hear from experts who will interpret quantitative data regarding the current status of global
hear from community leaders who are working to meet and integrate international immigrants and refugees into their communities,
hear from immigrants and refugees to learn more about the most pressing concerns of the immigration and refugee crisis from a first-hand perspective.
