Get Involved With Your Conference Rapid Response Team

The United Methodist Rapid Response Team consists of conferences dedicated to mobilizing congregations to welcome immigrants to their communities and to advocate for just and humane immigration reform at the state and federal level. It is organized by the United Methodist Task Force on Immigration and coordinated by the General Board of Church and Society.

The Rapid Response Team provides a common space for teams or task forces in conferences to share resources and to coordinate actions so that United Methodists can have the greatest impact in advocating for just immigration reform. Teams from each conference focus on building incarnational relationships between congregations and immigrant communities, for our most effective advocacy emanates from a position of immersed relationships and shared experiences.

Our goal is to build multigenerational movements among United Methodists to defend and support the rights of immigrants. For more information contact Bill Mefford, bmefford@umc-gbcs.org. For a list of participating conferences and team leaders, visit immigration.umwonline.net.
