Immigration reform remains one of the most contested issues in American politics and will likely play an important role in the 2012 presidential campaign. Religious communities, among the most forceful advocates of immigration reform in the last electoral cycle, are reassessing lessons learned and strategies going forward. This symposium brought together representatives of faith communities and researchers to address both their lobbying efforts and strategies used to facilitate immigrant integration into American society.
This event was sponsored by the Berkley Center for Religion, Peace, and World Affairs, Institute for the Study of International Migration, and the Woodstock Theological Center at Georgetown University. It was made possible through the generous support of the Henry Luce Foundation and the Luce/SFS Program on Religion and International Affairs.
