Welcoming America and Active Voice co-present this workshop about the best ways to select and strategically use story to deepen understanding and action around immigration, especially when it comes to welcoming newcomers. We will introduce ONWARD, a new story-based platform developed by Active Voice to support careful and nuanced conversations about pressing immigration-related themes in churches, seminaries, and other spaces where people of faith gather. ONWARD pairs a curated slate of short video pieces, long-form documentaries, audio pieces, and other stories with carefully vetted data and scriptural references to help leaders positively advance the conversation in their communities. Participants will walk away with some creative ideas and practical tools to begin incorporating story into their activities immediately and to create welcoming communities.
