The Roots of Immigration: Learnings from a recent visit to Honduras and Guatemala

December 10, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

A shot of nature

What prompts people to leave their homes in Central America and make the perilous journey to the United States, not knowing if they will be allowed in?  What are people there doing to provide alternatives to migrating?  And how might we respond in a helpful way?

These are questions Peggy Gish, who recently returned from a learning tour to Honduras and Guatemala, will address in her presentation.  Peggy will share photos, stories, and information she gathered, followed by a time for discussion.

Donations will be accepted during the event for immigrant asylum seekers: new or clean and gently used hats, gloves and small (lap size) blankets.
