Step 4: Take Action


DEVELOP AN ACTION PLAN

Divide the class/group into four groups Welcome, Protect, Promote, Integrate.  Provide each group an explanation of one action step to accompany migrants, refugees, and asylum seekers (use the info from What Does the Church Say or find printouts on DiscoverYourNeighbor.org). 

INSTRUCT each group to find a news story about migration and

DEVELOP A PLAN which could be used to accompany the people in the story.

Examples:

  1. Welcome: Invite guest speakers, such as refugees to tell their stories or  immigration lawyers to learn more about immigration laws.
  2. Protect: Develop ideas of how to  help create safe places for kids to be treated with kindness.
  3. Promote: Form a group to host a reading group for children learning English.
  4. Integrate:  Create ideas of how to include migrants and refugees in your school and church communities. 


PRESENT:  Have each group present their topic and plan to the class.  Encourage them to be creative in their presentations.  DISCUSS as a group if you would like to CHOOSE one of these plans to IMPLEMENT together.
