The San Diego School of Christian Studies is pleased to present our Resident Bishop Minerva Carcaño on the topic of Social Justice and the Immigration Crisis, primarily as pertaining to children.
Bishop Carcaño has been an outspoken and prophetic leader in the United Methodist Church and across the nation on the topic of immigration. She brings a depth of expertise, wisdom and faith to her own understanding of this national crisis along with a call to the church and people of faith to respond.

The Bishop's presentation will be followed by a short panel discussion with Q & A with those in attendance. Make this Sunday afternoon an opportunity to invite friends, neighbors and family members to engage in a serious topic that is especially salient to those of us who live in the San Diego area.
