About The Event

Join us for our first lunchtime series of the 2018-19 season! Registration encouraged, but not required.

On June 15, 2018 the Department of Homeland Security revealed that about 2000 children had been separated from their families from April 19 to May 31. The next day, a group of Cheverus High School students arrived at the Arizona/Mexico border to learn about issues of human migration. This week-long trip in the Southwest, one of two experiences offered by the Cheverus Immersion Program, was created in partnership with an organization called BorderLinks. While the students spent months preparing for the trip, the grassroots organizations that worked with students described the week of their visit as unprecedented, as the region was thrown into the national spotlight.

Please join us as a group of Cheverus students share their reflections on an eye-opening trip to the U.S. border.

As always, this series is free and open to the public. Suggested donation for $10 for nonmembers. Please feel free to bring your lunch to eat during the presentation.
