Social Ministry Committee Minutes
SM Activities 2017-2018
SM 2018 Feb. 24
On November 26th the OLOL Social Ministry Committee hosted an Information and Education Gathering on Immigration and the realities migrants face in the United States, at St Januarius. After viewing the DVD, Welcoming the Stranger, the group gathered for a discussion with questions and answers. The discussion was led by Carly Fox from the Worker Justice Center in Rochester, NY. Carly was joined by Sarah, an intern from SUNY Geneseo and Victor an immigrant farmworker. One item discussed was Operation Green Light, which is a legislative initiative to allow undocumented immigrants to obtain driver’s licenses. Those present were given the opportunity to sign a petition in support of Operation Green Light. The Social Ministry Committee plans to continue discussion on Immigration and our call to welcome the stranger with another session sometime after the New Year.
