Surviving the Border : Community Dinner and Benefit
Date Saturday June 15
Time 6:00 PM - 10:00 PM
Location Details
Berkeley Fellowship of Unitarian Universalists’ Hall
1924 Cedar (@Bonita), Berkeley
Event Type Fundraiser
For decades, migrants have been funneled through Arizona’s Sonora Desert, the border's most inhospitable terrain. Hundreds, if not thousands, have disappeared and died. The growing number of migrant fatalities signals that a human crisis continues to unfold in our backyard. This event will raise funds to carry out community-based research that seeks to undermine the systematic vulnerability of migrants created through border policies that use the border as a weapon.
Event includes traditional Mexican dinner and a short film by Luis Baltazar. Silent auction and raffle, no host bar and music by Latin Beats. For more info: abbycwheatley [at]
