Justice For Our Neighbors is led by Jamie Snyder. JFON provides free, professional legal services to immigrants in monthly clinics. JFON represents the response of the United Methodist Church and its local congregations to the needs of immigrants seeking to reunify their families, secure immigration status, and enjoy the right to work. In Columbus, the clinic is usually held on the evenings of the fourth Tuesdays of the month. For more background on this ministry, click on the following link:

In the words of the 1986 United Methodist Bishops' Statement on Refugees and Immigration, "God comes to us in the form of the vulnerable person who lacks the benefit of status and protection in an alien land. In the flesh of Jesus Christ of Nazareth God chose to sojourn in a particular way for the sake of all humankind…and restored the possibility of authentic community in which love and justice reign and peace prevails."
