Border Wall, Detention, Desert Deaths
A light lunch will be provided.
Are you saddened and enraged by the treatment of immigrants on our southern border? Do you have questions about the border wall, the “Remain in Mexico” policy, or detention? Are you curious about what you can do to help immigrants in your community?
Come join Nancyrose, who just arrived back from a two month journey to the US-Mexico border, for reflections on her time there. She will share stories and photos from working with asylum seekers in Tucson, witnessing border wall construction in a national monument, visiting the tent city in Matamoros, Mexico, and attending the Presbyterian Border Region Outreach Conference. Although not an expert, she’ll do her best to explain some of the complicated policies and the effects of these policies that she saw firsthand.
You can read some of Nancyrose’s reflections on her trip at www.wonderingwanderings.org.
