02/28/2022 10:40 am

The Franciscan Sisters of Perpetual Adoration’s Encuentro@TheBorder Team is pleased to host Joanna Williams for a discussion about the current realities at the border. “Hand in Hand: Welcoming Migrants at the Border” is scheduled for Thursday, March 17, 6-7 p.m. central. Sister Katie Mitchell will host this online discussion via Zoom.

“Last fall, the FSPA Encuentro@TheBorderTeam facilitated a discussion about the lived reality on the Rio Grande,” said Sister Katie. “Now, we have the opportunity to hear from Joanna Williams, executive director of the Kino Border Initiative.”

Joanna will share the joys and challenges she encounters while serving thousands of migrants who are deported to Nogales, Sonora, Mexico, or arrive feeling Central America. Arriving hungry and seeking shelter, many migrants are emotionally and psychologically shattered due to separation from their families and the struggle to navigate the hurdles of legally entering the United States.

When: Thursday, March 17, 2022
Time: 6 – 7 p.m. Central Time
Where: online via Zoom at https://bit.ly/fspaborder
