This year the annual NCADDHM conference was focused on learning about important social justice issues and how to empower each person attending and the ministries represented back home to advocate effectively for the most vulnerable.

About 80 participants visited their members of Congress to advocate for the Dream Act and for not cutting the budget for human and migrant assistance.
