A Focus on Immigration: At the Border and at Home
We are outraged and overwhelmed by the humanitarian crisis at the border. People are organizing protests, rallies, fundraisers, petitions, etc. to try to end the separation of families and ensure civil treatment of those who have fled their homes for a better life. We wish to use our July seminar to not only learn about the border, but to try and gain a better understanding of the bigger issues of immigration. We can not dive too far into this large topic in an hour, but hope to focus on three areas:
1. Humanitarian Crisis at the Border; a first-hand account
2. The laws that are allowing families to be separated, but also affecting immigrants who are already in our country and reside in Douglas County
3. What we can do to help both at the border and those in our community
Please join us.
