Last year, we created an Advent Calendar to Support Immigrants and Refugees. This year, as the futures of tens of thousands of refugees, DACA recipients, and immigrants who are at risk for deportation remain in question, we have created an “Advent Calendar to Defend Immigrants and Refugees.” As we enter into a season of preparation for the birth of Jesus Christ, the immigrant and refugee, we encourage you to take one action every day to protect, serve, and love our neighbors from other countries. We have especially included a week of actions to defend DACA and urge Congress to pass a clean Dream Act. We encourage you to participate and share with your faith community in order to bring hope for the holidays for those who may feel hopeless.
