ABQ Interfaith Packs Council Chambers in Support of Asylum Seekers, City Council Invests $250,000 in Humanitarian Crisis
In the face of a growing humanitarian crisis at the border, Albuquerque Interfaith has been at the forefront of a local response, mobilizing institutions to address the immediate needs of recent arrivals and building a longer-term strategy and constituency for change. This week, Albuquerque Interfaith and partners packed city council chambers in support of a $250,000 appropriation to the humanitarian crisis. 45 speakers spoke in support of the appropriation, including Catholic Archbishop John Wester and leaders from a broad swath of religious and nonprofit institutions.
