Learn About Migrant Ministry Through Virginia Interfaith Center Summit
Virginia Interfaith Center for Public Policy (VICPP) hosts an evening of sharing experiences in ministry and learning about the reality of life for migrants and farm workers on September 30. Connect with people of faith doing migrant and farm ministries around Virginia. Learn how we can build protection through advocacy. Together, we will work to expand protections for migrant and farm workers and hear about advocacy initiatives that would better support our brothers and sisters in this work. The event is from 6:00 to 8:30 p.m. via Zoom.
