In West Michigan, the issue of immigration reform is paramount to so many sectors of people. Business leaders, education experts, pastors, and government all recognize the need for real change.
Yet, we have not put the effort into creating a voice that can be sustainably heard. The time is now to create a prolonged voice that speaks for justice, mercy, and goodness. A world that opposes these things is no place that I want to live and move and have my being... nor do you.
So how do we move from a polarized discussion to a conversation that will be about more than creating fear or collecting votes at the ballot box? It is time for people with voices to daringly step forward to create a reality where we really want to live.
