Engage Your Family


Share the migration story that you researched with your family. Are there other stories of migration in your family? What are some reasons why people migrate?

As a family decide how you will be more welcoming and reach out to those you consider a stranger.

EXTENSION: Read Matthew 2:13-15. Talk about what it must have been like for Mary and Joseph to decide to flee to Egypt for safety.

Other Ways to Get Involved as Family:

  • Research your family's migration story
  • Learn and raise awareness about local and national policies that affect immigrants and refugees
  • Volunteer at or donate to programs that benefit immigrants and refugees in your community
