The Philadelphia-based American Friends Service Committee, which partners with the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) on issues including immigration, invited those attending a webinar last week to reimagine Independence Day with help from four panelists, many of them immigrants.
Last month’s webinar “Drone War, Tech Assassinations and the Future of Conflict” provided viewers with a thoughtful examination of policies, the law and the theology around the deadly use of drones and included ways Presbyterians and others can learn more and make their beliefs known to lawmakers and the Biden administration.

A diverse group of panelists concerned about how vulnerable communities are being impacted locally and globally by climate change and climate justice issues was featured in a webinar this week by the Washington office of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) and some of its partners.
Tension between Iran and the United States will be the focus of a webinar Thursday by the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) Office of Public Witness (OPW), the American Friends Service Committee (AFSC) and various other partners for peace.
