United Methodist Task Force on Immigration promotes congregation-based screenings of Made in L.A.

The United Methodist Task Force on Immigration has endorsed Made in L.A. for viewing by congregations nationwide as a means of introducing and promoting dialogue on issues of immigration and justice in the United States. The task force has also prepared a study guide and other educational materials for use in relation to local showings.

Bishop Minerva CarcaƱo of Phoenix, Arizona, chair of the task force, says that the story in the film "beautifully illustrates the courage, perseverance, and strength that these women show daily in caring for their families, contributing to their communities, organizing to overcome exploitation, and building a life that is both inspiring and challenging." "In the end, these women discover the power of their collective voice as they stand together in unity against exploitation... After watching Made in LA, I know you and your church will be inspired to join in the movement for comprehensive immigration reform," the bishop writes in the introduction.
