For Immediate Release – Claysburg Pennsylvania
The Episcopal Peace Fellowship (EPF) endorses the Fellowship of Reconciliation’s condemnation of President Donald Trump’s recent “Executive Order: Protecting the Nation from Foreign Terrorist Entry into the United States” that forbids foreign nationals from seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the United States.

“The United Sates was created and sustained by immigrants who came to our country from throughout the world. Now is the time for the United States to embody our historic principles of hospitality and religious freedom,” said the Rev. Allison Liles, executive director of Episcopal Peace Fellowship.
Liles continued to say — “Our Episcopal Book of Common Prayer’s Prayer for the Human Family asks that God look with compassion on the whole human family, taking away the arrogance and hatred which infect our hearts, breaking down the walls that separate us and instead unite us in bonds of love.
EPF staunchly opposes President Trump’s discriminatory executive decision, which turns our country’s back on refugees at a time when they are most in need of safety.
The Episcopal Peace Fellowship has championed peace, nonviolence and social justice issues since its founding on Armistice Day in 1939.
