Presentation - "G92: How Faith and Justice Relate to Immigration"

January 28, 2013 | 7:00 PM |
Wichers Auditorium of Nykerk Hall

The word ger (a sojourner, or immigrant) occurs 92 times in the Hebrew Scriptures. G92 is "a student movement that seeks to understand and respond to the challenges and opportunities of immigration in ways consistent with biblical values of justice, compassion, and hospitality."

Matthew Soerens, co-author of Welcoming the Stranger: Justice, Compassion, and Truth in the Immigration Debate, will make a presentation on immigration and his work with G92, followed by a panel of community members who will speak about their own experiences.

This event is co-sponsored by Phelps Scholars and Hope United for Justice.
