Introduction

Everyone wants to have conversations about things that matter. More than that, we believe one of the gifts communities of faith have to offer is a place to talk about the issues, concerns and passions which are on our hearts. As part of Trinity's Thrive initiative, we are conducting Conversations that Matters programs thoughout the year. These programs are designed to support Trinity congregation members as well as our broader DuPage community.

These Programs Will

  • be lively and informative discussions;
  • be led by experienced, highly recommended facilitators; and
  • provide a compassionate, thoughtful source of learning for our community.

If you have questions about this program or would like to suggest a topic, please email Trinity at office@trinitywheaton.org.

Conversations That Matter

DACA - Separating Fact from Fiction - May 24

You have probably heard about “DACA”, you probably know it has something to do with immigration, but what exactly is it? Join in a conversation designed to help us learn about DACA (Deferred Action for Child Arrivals) as we try to separate fact from fiction. The talk will be a basic overview of the US Immigration system and then take a deeper look at the Deferred Action for Childhood(DACA) policy. The presentation is an opportunity to learn about an issue that is being discussed in the media and elsewhere that concerns members of our society who are in a precarious position. There will be further discussion of the psycho-social implications of being undocumented.

We are fortunate to have as our speaker Catherine Norquist, Director of Immigrant Legal Services for World Relief DuPage/Aurora. There have been many twists and turns in the evolution of DACA. Catherine will bring us up to date on the current status of young people who are caught in the uncertainty of their future homeland. The date of the event is Thursday May 24, 2018 with the doors open at 6:30pm with presentation starting at 7pm. Light refreshments will be served.
