Immigration Justice: Learn, Respond, Act

Felix Nussbaum, “The Refugee” (1939)

Please consider joining campus leaders, including our very own Daisy Marquez (Human Services, ’17) to learn more about individuals who are immigrants and refugees and to be part of NDNU’s efforts to respond to this crisis.

Those participating will encounter the stories of immigrants and refugees in various forms: at a monthly vigil at an immigration detention center, at the historical exhibit on Angel Island, at the courtrooms holding deportation hearings, from Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials, and from the families and individuals themselves.

Students are invited to attend all OR some of the following events:

Saturday, March 4:  Meet at West County Detention Center in Richmond 1-12:30

Sunday, March 5:  Meet at Angel Island Ferry Terminal, SF Fisherman’s Wharf, 9-3

Monday, March 6:  Meet at Immigration District Court, Sansome Street, SF  8:30-5

Tuesday, March 7:  Meet at Immigration Courts, Montgomery St., SF 8:30-noon.

Leaders:

  • Daisy Marquez, Human Services, ’17
  • Dr. Stephen Cole, NDNU History Department
  • Jim McGarry, Sr. Dorothy Stang Center, NDNU
  • Fr. Ken Hamilton, NDNU Philosophy and Religious Studies Department

There is NO COST for this “Alternative Spring Break.”  For more information or to sign up, contact Jim McGarry at jmcgarry@ndnu.edu or (650) 508-4120
