The Anti-Defamation League’s Coalition for Mutual Respect is joining with The Houston Coalition for Immigration Reform and the Kinder Institute for Urban Research to host a conference on faith based immigration reform. The conference will be held on Sept. 15th at Rice University’s Fondren Library from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

The conference for religious educators, clergy and spiritual leaders from all faiths will offer a unique experience that blends theological education with practical tools to assist practitioners, especially religious educators, in implementing immigration education in their local community of faith. The featured speakers are Dr. Daniel Carroll, Denver Seminary’s Distinguished Professor of Old Testament, and author of “Christians at the Border”; and Scott Hirschfeld, ADL’s Director of Curriculum Training and Curriculum Department, and author of ADL’s national curriculum entitled “Huddled Mass or Second Class?: Challenging Anti- Immigrant Bias in the U.S”. Mr. Hirschfeld will offer training on the curriculum materials.

An RSVP to southwest is required. We are limiting enrollment to 50 participants. Please include name, title, house of worship/organization, grade level taught (if educator), mailing address, phone and Email address.

The cost to attend the program is $25.00 per person. Cost includes continental breakfast and curriculum materials. Payment can be made at the door.
