Let's Talk about It: Immigration, migration and our Southern border

Let's Talk about It: Immigration, migration and our Southern border

Meeting Rooms A & B Combined
Saturday, Sep 14, 9:30am to 11:00am

The treatment of immigrants at the border and across this country has been beyond horrific and unconscionable. It can be overwhelming for adults to comprehend, let alone for children! Join facilitators from Families for Justice of Dane County for a multi-generational workshop that will include discussion, learning, and activities for adults and children. It is critical for us to come together in our families and in our community so we can better defend the rights and humanity of immigrants and asylum seekers. Adults will learn together for the first hour, and then kids will be invited to join in. Childcare is available for ages 6mos-8yrs--please call Abigail at 266-6385 to reserve a slot in advance. Slots will also be available on a first-come, first-served basis on Saturday morning.

This event is part of a series which supports the book launch of Green Card Youth Voices: Immigration Stories from Madison and Milwaukee High Schools​. Generous financial support for this series is provided by the Friends of the Lakeview Library and the Friends of the Sequoya Library, with funding for the Green Card Youth Voices--Madison exhibit with a grant from the Beyond the Page Endowment Fund.
