Daily Prayers for Child Refugees: 1 p.m.

Join our advocacy in this crisis. Prayers, awareness and donations are crucial.

Daily Prayers for Child Refugees: 1 p.m.
Pray daily at 1 p.m.

United Methodist Women works for immigration justice with United Methodist and other partners every day. Those currently arriving at the southern border of the U.S. - many of whom are children - need our assistance. We can't all go to Washington, D.C., to march but we can all do something in solidarity with our new neighbors.

  • Learn about Immigration and Global Migration issues and find resources for increasing awareness in your church and community
  • Consider attending a Seminar on Immigration: One participant blogged about her group's experience
  • On August 9, the Denver Metro District United Methodist Women held a forum called "Immigration and Refugees," led by Rev. Dr. Miguel A. De La Torre, a professor of social ethics at Iliff Seminary in Denver who works with No More Deaths and Borderlinks. The event ended with a vigil to welcome refugee children. You can view photos from the event on Flickr.
