The immigration reform debate is heating up in Washington, D.C., and hundreds of faith communities across the country are showing a new, grassroots-led activism on behalf of immigrants in their communities.

This map illustrates the breadth of faith-based activities—town hall meetings, prayer vigils, potluck suppers, and more—that are taking place in small towns and urban centers across the country.

To explore activities, simply click a location to see what people of faith are doing in that area.

If you know of any activities in your community that aren’t shown here, please let us know by emailing Ann Garcia at agarcia@americanprogress.org. Please include a brief summary of the group’s past events as well as the organizer’s name and photographs, if available.
