An online talk series from the Williamsburg Unitarian Universalists. The first of 5 talks in April, May, and June 2021.
As the kickoff of our series, this session will help us set the stage. This workshop examines U.S. policies historically which have both directly and indirectly influenced immigration and migration, and how this correlates with current events. This workshop allows for a deeper discussion around the root causes of migration, as well as who benefits from the current system of enforcement and laws. Special attention is paid to how U.S. policies have in particular influenced the U.S/Mexico borderlands. The workshop will be facilitated by BorderLinks, an Arizona-based organization that connects communities, raises awareness about the impact of the border and immigration policies, and inspires action for social transformation through dynamic educational experiences.
