Protect the Dreamers: it is time to pray and act.
As Christ-following United Methodists we have always sought to faithfully stand with the marginalized. The recent decision to end Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) has left many more people vulnerable and afraid. If the Dream Act doesn’t pass, whole families will be at risk. Faith leaders need to have a plan to engage as Jesus would engage with this humanitarian issue. If you are ready to act on DACA, here resources to help you do just that.
