For over three decades, US immigration policies have become increasingly harsh, a trend that is only becoming worse under the Trump Administration.
On Thursday, May 24, at 7 pm, Brian Best, the executive director of BorderLinks in Tucson, Arizona, will lead a discussion on how the current political climate is putting even more lives in danger.
BorderLinks was founded 30 years ago as the educational arm of the US Sanctuary Movement. Each year, over 50 groups made up of over 600 individuals participate in BorderLinks programs, learning about the realities of migration from directly-affected people and their allies.
The discussion will take place in Loper Chapel. Contact Rachel Bauman for more information.
In June of 2017, First Church signed the Sanctuary Movement Pledge. More about that here...
