Special Announcement Regarding Justice for Immigrants Regional Training
The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops' Justice for Immigrants (JFI) campaign will conduct a training in the Cincinnati area on March 26-28, 2009. The purpose of the training is to convene supporters of comprehensive immigration reform (CIR) in Ohio, Indiana, West Virginia, Kentucky, and Michigan, strengthen and grow the support base for immigration reform, and arm supporters with updated messages and educational pieces to continue to push for CIR.

JFI has identified Ohio and the surrounding states as prime areas of opportunity to move large numbers of Catholics and Catholic federal lawmakers to support CIR.
Event information, including the agenda, may be found here.

A limited number of scholarships are available, and anyone interested in a scholarship should call 202-541-3165 to apply for one. Questions about the convening may also be directed to the same telephone number.

Please consider attending the training and/or sharing this information with your networks.
For more information, please contact Lucreda Cobbs, Senior Director of Advocacy and Civic Engagement,
