Announcing ATCF's delegation to the Texas Valley
May 16-18, 2014
- - A South Texas immigrant detention facility, conversation with the director, possibly with detainees.
- - An immigrant colonia near the Rio Grande where residents organize themselves for their rights and their survival.
- - The Wall: walk a short section of it, speak with a Sierra Club representative and, possibly, a border patrol agent.
- - Legal group in San Antonio that offers free or low cost services to immigrants.
- - Meet with an organizer from our Mexican partner group, the Comité Fronterizo de Obrer@s, who will cross the border into Texas to meet with our group.
Note also that ATCF will be one of the sponsors/participants in a forum on March 1, 2014, on "Why People Migrate," a perfect way to prepare for the delegation. The forum will be held at the First Unitarian Universalist Church on Grover, 4 to 6PM. More details to come.
