Good episode? Give it some love!
This time on Peace Talks Radio, a two-part program. Part one is a focus
on outreach efforts that intend to bring some peace and safety to
immigrants whose futures have become tangled up in the United States’
evolving immigration stance. First we’ll hear the story of Jose Torres
who, in the fall of 2017, became the first person in New Orleans to take
sanctuary in a church to avoid deportation. Jose is a community leader
with the Congress of Day Laborers, a group of immigrant workers and
families who helped to rebuild the city after Hurricane Katrina. Producer
Sarah Holtz spoke with Jose at his place of sanctuary, First Grace
Methodist Church.
Then Suzanne Kryder speaks with Justin Remer-Thamert, director of the New
Mexico Faith Coalition For Immigrant Justice, who recently received the
Parliament of the World's Religions Justice Award. Justin also offers
some ideas about bringing opposing sides of the immigration debate closer
Finally, Suzanne visits with Bawa Jain, the Secretary-General of The
Millennium World Peace Summit of Religious and Spiritual Leaders that
opened at the United Nations in August 2000 with the intent to find ways
that the worldwide religious and spiritual communities can work together
as interfaith allies with the United Nations on specific peace, poverty
and environmental initiatives.
