Border Stories — Immigration and Humanitarian Work (Harvard)
3 p.m. PT | 6 p.m. EST | RSVP here
Stories about border walls, migrant caravans, and family separations have made national news headlines in recent years, but what does justice look like for the 33,000 migrants that were detained by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) in prisons and private facilities this past year? During this session, Lauren Kostes, Managing Attorney at the Florence Immigrant and Refugee Rights Project along with Meena Venkataramanan and Vivekae Kim, co-founders of Stories from the Border, will share their perspectives on the multitude of challenges facing undocumented immigrants, refugees, and asylum seekers in Arizona. Students will learn about advocacy and human rights efforts through legal and journalistic frameworks.
Hosted by Harvard’s Center for Public Service and Engaged Scholarship
