BBL: SEEKING ASYLUM
There is what you learn from national news reports & then there is the
perspective from community members who have witnessed the situation
first hand. Journey to Arizona’s southern border & to Madre Asunta shelter
in Tijuana with Skagit Valley residents & School of America volunteers Jane
Mayer & Ria Stroosma as well as John Baker of Bellingham WA — who was
joined by Mount Vernon City Councilwoman Iris Carias who works with
migrant families in the MV School District — as they share their separate &
collective experiences & impression of what is happening along the
the southern border with the refugees awaiting asylum in the United States.
Join us for this important, thoughtful & timely conversation:
HERE WE ALL ARE.
