Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service Announces our new Steering Committee:

We are pleased to share that in February 2016, an all-volunteer Steering Committee began meeting monthly on behalf of the Migrant Housing and Protection Community of Practice (COP). The committee includes representatives from LIRS (Baltimore, MD), Presbyterian Disaster Assistance (Louisville, KY); Sarah’s … an Oasis for Women (St. Paul, MN); CLASP (Chicago, IL); Casa Libre (Los Angeles, CA); and Survivors of Torture (San Diego, CA). We are excited to start working towards common goals that emerged from the Housing Convening to help support asylum seekers. Cheryl Behrent, Sarah’s Director, represents Sarah’s on the committee.
