Welcoming asylum seekers
Asylum seekers, like refugees, are migrants who flee their homes due to a fear of violence or persecution. Join MCC and partners from across the U.S. to learn more about who asylum seekers are and the many ways the faith community can walk alongside them in their journey to find safe refuge.

The webinar will be in English with Spanish interpretation.

During this webinar, Katherine Smith, West Coast MCC’s Border and Migration Coordinator will share about what families experience at the U.S.-Mexico border. Cecilia Valenzuela from Casa Mariposa Detention Visitation Center will share about the need for accompaniment for asylum seekers currently in detention. Jessica Sapalio, program coordinator for Unitarian Universalist Service Committee's Congregational Accompaniment Program for Asylum Seekers, and Rev. Chris McNabb, Neighbor to Neighbor Program Manager for Episcopal Migration Ministries, will share about programs to help churches sponsor asylum seekers in their own community.

Las personas solicitantes de asilo, al igual que las personas refugiadas, son migrantes que huyen de sus hogares por miedo a la violencia o a la persecución. Únase a CCM y a sus socios para aprender más sobre quiénes son las personas que buscan asilo y las muchas maneras en que la comunidad de fe puede caminar junto a ellas en su viaje para encontrar un refugio seguro.
