Rabbi Abie Ingber, of Xavier University’s Office of Interfaith Community Engagement, was one of thirteen faith leaders from across the country invited to Washington, DC to be trained as spokespersons for immigration reform. Organized through Faith in Public Life (FPL) and the Interfaith Immigration Coalition (IIC), the training helped the faith leaders develop their public witness on this issue, strengthen their messaging, and learn key needs in media interviews. Ingber is now a member of a team of capable and engaging speakers who can be called upon for local and national cable and network television and radio bookings, as well as interviews for print and online publications. His training began with a policy update on immigration reform, a message briefing based on the latest research and work on the ground, and a report from a top religion and politics pollster who had just completed focus groups with religious voters in Ohio.
