Immigration & Refugees: Updates & Actions
The BYM Peace and Social Concerns Committee will offer a zoom workshop on Saturday, February 13, 10:00 am to noon on immigration and refugee issues including policies at the national and state levels.
The workshop will be led by PSC Committee member Bette Hoover (Sandy Spring Meeting, Maryland) who has substantial experience working in these areas. She will be joined by other Friends and colleagues working in this area as we review potential positive changes under consideration in our BYM states and nationally under the new administration.
