Immigration: Legal and Faith Perspectives

Join Micah Connection and the Outreach Committee on February 6, at 7pm in the Chapel for a panel discussion on immigration. The panel will feature presentations by Jeremy McKinney, an immigration law specialist based in Greensboro, and the Rev. Julie Peeples, an immigration advocate and senior pastor of Congregational United Church of Christ in Greensboro. The evening will include time for questions and answers.

 McKinney, a nationally known immigration law expert, is an officer with the American Immigration Lawyers Association and has served as an adjunct professor at the Elon University School of Law. A former captain and JAG officer in the N.C. Army National Guard, McKinney served in Jordan in 2003 in connection with the Iraq War. Peeples is a longtime community leader who recently participated in an interfaith prayer session at the border to show support for Central American asylum-seekers and to call for an end to detaining and deporting immigrants. Her church has served as a sanctuary for a Greensboro immigrant threatened with deportation.

No RSVP necessary.
