Faith leaders, using moral frames and faith-oriented narratives, can help local communities move towards a welcoming tipping point.  This session will introduce research findings from three of Auburn Seminary’s fieldwork cities (Dayton, Omaha and Minneapolis) where faith leaders have played an important role in supporting immigrant integration. Participants will map faith leader engagement in their own locality and explore how Auburn’s national network of faith leaders may be leveraged to deepen local faith leader engagement.
