Trinity Church Wall Street has compiled an online primer based on its teach-in event Undocumented: What Do Faith Communities Need to Know?

Undocumented was presented by Trinity Institute and Church Meets City on Oct. 28 at Trinity Church in Lower Manhattan.

Lectures and panel discussions cover the immigrant experience, Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), temporary protected status, and sanctuary. They are now available on demand.

Featured speakers include the Very Rev. Michael Battle of General Theological Seminary; Laura Lemus, National Urban Fellow at Baruch College and DACA recipient; Lacy Broemel of the Episcopal Church’s Office of Government Relations; Jihad Alharash, physician and Syrian immigrant; and Amaha Kassa of African Communities Together.

The Rev. Chloe Breyer, executive director of the Interfaith Center of New York, discusses what churches can do in conversation with Jose Chapa, Rural & Migrant Ministry, the Rev. Juan Carlos Ruiz, New Sanctuary Coalition, and Ms. Broemel.

Technical and legal definitions are also available, along with stories of what other communities are doing and referrals to partners in the Episcopal Church and secular organizations working to create a safe space for asylum seekers, refugees and other immigrants.
