At the same time as the Interfaith Vigil, a small group of IWJ-NE leaders joined a larger group of Nebraskan delegates to Washington DC for Ecumenical Advocacy Days which focused on immigration issues. The conference was full of educational workshops and it was a great opportunity to network with other key national leaders.
On Sunday evening IWJ-NE joined the march for immigration reform on the National Mall with over 250,000 people. What an impressive sight to see people busing in from across the country to join this cause for just reform for those who have so often been place on the Margins. On Monday, IWJ-NE joined other Nebraskan leaders in lobbying for reform to our congress people and our Senators.
