Immigration Reform:
Legal Questions & Moral Issues

Free Community Presentation & Discussion
Friday, January 11, at 7:00 pm

Billerica First Parish
7 Concord Road (on the common)

Billerica First Parish Social Justice Committee is hosting a presentation and discussion about local and national issues of immigration reform.

Immigration issues have been an important, often divisive and polarizing topic for many years, but now, more faith, law enforcement, and business leaders are working towards consensus on solutions to the pressing need for common-sense, comprehensive immigration reform.

We invite business and community leaders, and members of all faith communities as well as the general public to come and learn more about what these issues mean not only as legal questions but also as a moral issue as we we explore:

• The important historical and recent events that help us understand the current local as well as national immigration situation.

• Massachusetts and U.S. policy affecting immigrants today and new legislation that will be introduced in the Massachusetts legislature in 2013.

• Personal stories of undocumented immigrants, and one of the common questions in the immigration debate: “Why don’t undocumented immigrants get in line and come to the U.S. legally?”

• Ways to be involved - individually, through a church, or with other immigrant rights groups - through advocacy, witness or direct service.

This is part of Billerica First Parish's monthly community series of social justice presentations that are free and open to the public. Our building is handicapped accessible and all are welcome. Light refreshments. 978-663-2233   www.uubillerica.org  facebook event - http://www.facebook.com/events/482715201780173/
