Immigration - The Good Shepherd United Church of Christ, Sahuarita, AZ

Immigration is one of the key national issues that has enlivened the political debate over the past 10 years.  As residents of the borderlands it is critical that we have basic knowledge of the causes and effects so we can be a calm voice in the conversation.  This workshop will give people a glimpse of the wall, a walk in the desert, and real life stories of immigrants in our midst as we learn about life in the borderlands and the struggles for border communities to create a better border reality.  Participants should bring long pants and closed toe shoes for a Saturday walk in the desert to some migrant memorials. Facilitated by Rev. Dr. Randy Mayer.
