The New Mexico Faith Coalition for Immigrant Justice was founded in 2009, and has committees that focus on direct service, education & advocacy, and outreach. We welcome all who seek immigrant justice. We share a common hope of creating an environment that welcomes the stranger in our age and for generations to come.
Collaborate with faith communities to create an ecumenical and interfaith alliance in the state of New Mexico for immigrant justice. In this mission we seek to:
Educate our community about immigrant issues
Provide compassionate services to immigrant families
Advocate for humane immigration reform that promotes family unity, and respects the inherent dignity of every person
As people of faith, we are committed to promoting comprehensive, humane immigration reform and working on behalf of those who are affected by unjust laws that do not reflect these higher values:
Dignity of the person
Unity of the family
Richness in diversity
Freedom of the pursuit of purpose
We uphold these values through our work of direct service, accompaniment, education, and advocacy.
