You can join what God is doing through the church to support the passage of humane immigration reform.
Be a Blessing Not Burden Partner
Blessing Not Burden partners are 3 or more people in a congregation that are committed to walking with their congregations as they learn more about our broken immigration system and how it impacts the people God calls us to welcome and defend. Partners work to educate their congregations, help integrate the topic of immigration into worship, find their voice to speak to their public officials about common sense immigration policy, and connect church members to local efforts. Visit our Blessing Not Burden Partner page to sign up and learn more!
Join the Immigrants Are a Blessing Not a Burden Campaign
Even though immigrants bring a wealth of cultural and economic growth to our country, mainstream culture frequently refers to them as a burden. That conversation must be changed, and we have launched this campaign to make that happen. You can share the truth about immigrants: Sign, Partner, Wear, and Change the Conversation.

Advocate for just immigration policies
Calling on your elected officials to reform United States immigration laws and to enact policies reflecting that immigrants are a blessing, not a burden, is critical. Loving our neighbor can take many forms, including advocacy. In order to have more just laws supporting our immigrant brothers and sisters, we can love our neighbor by contacting our congressional representatives. This is also one of the ways we can steward our voices to change the conversation to make a broad impact on many people’s lives.
