Event Description

Join a lobbying workshop with Hannah Graf Evans, Legislative Representative for Immigration at the Friends Committee on National Legislation (the Quaker lobby) to learn how individuals can provide effective messages, and transform our relationships with our federal elected officials toward just immigration policies. The workshop will resource you with the tools you need to take action on the federal level on immigration, including a current state of play in Congress and the Administration on immigration issues, and a hands-on practicum for conducting a lobby visit.

  • Legislative Representative, Immigration and Domestic Policy

Hannah Graf Evans lobbies for compassionate immigration policies. Our immigration system should empower immigrants and the American communities to which they belong, lift up the voices of border communities, and ensure adequate protections for refugees, asylum-seekers and victims of trafficking. Hannah co-chairs the steering committee of the Interfaith Immigration Coalition, made up of over 45 faith-based organizations.
