First Hand Account of the Crisis at Our Southern Border
·Why did The Central American Caravan come to our Southern Border?
·What can we do about resolving the humanitarian crisis at the border?
These are questions that inspired local veterans Bob Ames and Lew Montemaggi to go to
Nogales, Arizona, on November 7-20, 2018.
You are invited to their presentation and discussion on
Wednesday, December 12, 2018, 7:00 PM
First Unitarian Church
220 South Winton Road
Rochester, NY 14610
They will talk about their participation in the School of the Americas Watch/El
Encuentro, which is an annual demonstration with workshops protesting US
policies in Latin America and along the US/Mexican border.
Additionally, they participated in humanitarian work with an Arizona group. They
went on a water drop and desert search, worked in a soup kitchen, and attended the
deportation trials of recently arrested migrants.
They will share many stories. Be sure to ask about the “Cowgirl!”
