On Monday, April 8th, some 250 people of faith from across Oregon
joined together in Salem for IMIrJ’s first-ever Advocacy Day!
Drawing on the rich practices, stories and rituals of our various faith traditions, we joined our voices together in a meaningful - and politically impactful - day at the Capitol, amplifying the demands and priorities of Oregon’s immigrant and refugee communities.
Thank you to Kathy Edge for the photographs!

At the same time, we know that passing state policies that will allow Oregonians to live in safe and welcoming communities regardless of their immigration status is more than a one-day affair. We are committed to accompanying your faith community’s Sanctuary Team throughout the duration of the legislative session (and beyond!), as we work together to ensure true Sanctuary for All.
