WAC promotes immigration reform

Alice Woldt, transitional executive director of the Washington Association of Churches (WAC), recently joined 1,000 others in Washington, D.C. for Ecumenical Advocacy Days.  They joined about 200,000 faith community leaders on the mall calling for comprehensive immigration reform.

“Now it’s our turn in Washington State and in communities throughout the nation to stand in solidarity on April 10 with those who were on the mall—every race, every age, every religion—to call for humane and just immigration policies,” she said.

The WAC has joined with the Washington Immigration Reform Coalition (WIRC), planning a rally at noon, Saturday, April 10, at Occidental Park in Seattle.  The WIRC has reserved more than 90 busses to help bring 10,000 people from around the state.
