The Episcopal Church Women have a long history for triumphing local and global issues affecting women and girls. Their work encompases migration issues, including the reasons for why people from other countries look for asylum, or a better life for themselves and their families in the United States.
They take a keen interest in local and national work regarding refugees and immigrants and how your parish can support persons detained at the borders or elsewhere.
Human Trafficking education using videos, articles, and lectures encompass a large portion of their social justice program. They work to provide a haven of kindness, understanding, and safety for victims of Human Trafficking. They are active in organizing rallies and demonstrations for the purpose of raising awareness of women’s causes as well as working with local and national lawmakers to implement legislation for the benefit of the family.
