Migration at the Southern Border: Law, Policy, Myth, and More (Virtual)
Bardis Vakili, attorney at the ACLU of San Diego and Imperial Counties (ACLU-SDIC), will discuss the current situation at the southern border, based on his experience working on the California-Mexico frontier. He will focus on border and immigration policy and how it has shifted over the years, as well as the human impact of those policies, and some of the root causes of migration. He will be in conversation with Sara Ritchie, Director of Communications for the Kino Border Initiative, a binational organization that provides humanitarian aid to migrants on the Mexico side of the US-Mexico border, as well as engages in education and advocacy.
This program, offered in English and Spanish with simultaneous interpretation, is in conjunction with Border Cantos | Sonic Border: Richard Misrach | Guillermo Galindo, which is on view at the HRM through May 9, 2021.
