Rural & Migrant Ministry is a mission partner of the Presbytery.

The organization will be holding a conference in the Catskills on the weekend of October 15, 2011, in conjunction with its 30th anniversary. They will bring together a large group of people from the rural and migrant communities and allies from the faith communities to explore issues of rural transformation.

They wish to be intentional about inviting the disenfranchised farmworkers, rural workers and rural women from the Rochester/Buffalo/Geneva region. The grant will cover the cost of transportation, lodging and translators for this group of people.
