scheduled decided to come anyway if there was a way to make it happen.
Hence, Mid-Atlantic Just Conference Lite - Thursday, March 23,

Episcopal Migration Ministries, the refugee
resettlement agency of the Episcopal Church, invites participation in
supporting its life-saving work through Stand to Support Refugees, a
fundraising campaign to maintain a strong, viable ministry network to
welcome those fleeing war, violence and persecution. Donations to Stand
to Support Refugees will help strengthen important ministry to some of
the most vulnerable throughout the world.
Migration Ministries is a ministry of the Episcopal Church, and is one
of nine national agencies responsible for resettling refugees in the
United States in partnership with the government. Episcopal Migration
Ministries currently has 31 affiliate offices in 23 states. Like other agencies that resettle
refugees and assist them with housing, job training, and other
services, Episcopal Migration Ministries receives the bulk of its
funding from federal grants. As a result of the March 6 Executive Order,
funding is being dramatically reduced for the remainder of 2017,
potentially resulting in significant negative impact to core ministries
offered by Episcopal Migration Ministries.
