Hi Nate, thank you very much for your very thoughtful and thorough feedback. My apologies for the delay in getting back....we have been responding to numerous detention and deportation cases at work. You've provided new perspective and insight that has helped us think more deeply through the Improve phase of this process. I especially appreciate your thinking protectively of the program (deeper analyzation of US trends before expanding internationally, not moving forward in certain communities without adequate, sustainable funding). Given the steady, successful expansion of the FaithAction ID program and network over the last 6 years, we feel confident that a national funding partner could take this initiative to the next level in many of the ways you've recommended. Thank you again for your time and expertise, and hope we can connect again into the future.
Thank you Mahmoud. Over the past 6 years, the program has certainly made a life changing difference to thousands of newcomers across the US (in small and large cities alike). It has also really helped to build bridges between newcomers and law enforcement, health centers, businesses, and many other sectors that have agreed to accept the ID. We definitely believe the FaithAction ID drive and dialogue model has tremendous potential in many other parts of the world as well, and would love the opportunity to help share it with others. Thanks again.
