Report Back From the Border: What Can We Do?

When: Monday December 3, 6pm-8pm
Where:
Parlor Room, 32 Masonic St, Northampton

What: Come to Sanctuary in the Streets General Assembly this Monday, December 3rd at 6PM to find out ways to support the migrant caravan, both at the border and locally. One of our newest staff members Adelita Simon, will be arriving back Sunday from a week at the border with the Sanctuary Caravan to prepare for a 40 day & 40 night encampment of thousands of US citizens to help welcome the asylum seekers. 

The panel will include Adelita Simon and Carolyn Oppenheim's experiences of resisting at the border. The panel will be moderated by Diana Sierra a historian and organizer with the Pioneer Valley Workers Center. Diana will provide historical context to explain why people migrate. We will spend the second hour planning for a Massachusetts Delegation to head to the border, local actions, and ongoing organizing.
