What: Join the Saint Mary's College community for an evening lecture on immigration, immigration reform, and the need for communities to advocate for peace at our borders. Most people do not think of immigration as a peace issue, but immigration reform will bring peace to both sides of the border. There are roots of violence in the communities split apart by the border, in labor systems that are unfair and unequal, and in gangs that no country can address on their own. Catholic Relief Services is the official humanitarian agency of the US Catholic Church, and has programs throughout Central America and Mexico addressing development, migration, and alternatives to gang violence.
Who: Richard Jones is Deputy Regional Director for Global Solidarity and Justice in Latin America and the Caribbean. He is primarily responsible for work in peace building, migration, solidarity and justice, all of which involve collaboration with the Church in Latin America.
When: Wednesday, November 18 at 7 p.m.
Where: Chapel, Saint Mary's College of California, 1928 St. Mary's College Rd., Moraga
