Quakers working together for immigrant justice

Note: Lori Fernald Khamala, program director of AFSC's Project Voice in Greensboro, North Carolina, shares the story of how AFSC partnered with FCNL and local Quakers to advocate for humane immigration reform this month. - Madeline

Even though Quaker organizations often work on the same issues and share the same values, it doesn’t mean we always work together as well as we should. But recently, a local collaboration between AFSC and the Friends Committee on National Legislation (FCNL) netted big gains.

David Bacon 2013

David Bacon is a California-based photojournalist and labor activist

"As a documentary photographer and journalist, I don't claim to be an unbiased observer. I'm on the side of immigrant workers and unions in the United States and share their struggle for rights and a decent life. I take the side of people in Mexico trying to find alternatives for democratic political change. If the work I do helps to strengthen these movements, it will have served a good purpose."

Statement on the Legal Workforce Act and SKILLS Visa Act

 Philadelphia (June 27, 2013) - The American Friends Service Committee (AFSC) is a Quaker organization with nearly 100 years of experience working to support the needs and aspirations of communities across the globe, including immigrant communities in the U.S.  We are deeply concerned that the Legal Workforce Act (HR 1772) and the SKILLS Visa Act (HR 2131) will only continue to perpetuate the heartbreaking impacts of the broken, punitive, and unjust U.S. immigration system we see daily in our work.
