Today I got to pitch the Becoming Visible campaign to a group of Spring Hill College students. The students are already planning to lobby Alabama’s U.S. Senator Jeff Sessions about immigration, which makes them a feisty group of activists. They discussed the issues intelligently, liked the idea of the campaign, and took some flyers. I’m excited about having them involved with Adios Alabama and Becoming Visible.

    Todd, I’m sharing some resource ideas from a friend.

    Church World Service compiled a website with various denominational resources, teaching materials, movies, and advocacy items at: http://www.supportimmigrationreform.org Another terrific site is the site for the Interfaith Immigration Coalition at http://www.interfaithimmigration.org. You may also want to add comments and links to the CWS immigration Facebook page, “immigrantsandrefugees.” That is a way to share nationally what is going on in Alabama. One of the best books on the subject of faith and immigration is by Matt Soerens and Jenny Hwang, Welcoming the Stranger: Justice, Compassion, and Truth in the Immigration Debate. This information is from my friend, Rev. Gini Lohmann Bauman.
