Story Sharing: Immigration Before Us

Together we will watch the movie “Trails of Hope and Terror:Testimonies of Immigration”, and then share a panel discussion. The panel will include young adults with first-hand experiences of immigration. The discussion will include theological reflection and historical contextualization designed to lead us into a conversation that includes: causes of migration, the U.S. response before decades of Central and South America exodus, and step actions towards a just consciousness.
