BORDER COMMUNITIES, RACIAL INEQUALITIES, AND HUMAN RIGHTS

Tuesday, October 1, 2019 at 11:40am to 1:10am

Uris Hall, G08
Central Campus

Join Fernando Garcia as he discusses the past, present, and future of the conditions of the U.S.-Mexico border and what that means for the United States as a whole. He shares the ways in which many systems intersect at the U.S.-Mexico border, especially white supremacy, the criminalization of immigrants, and the militarization of society. He is part of organizing border communities against intensifying repression and raising up leaders in these communities.

Fernando Garcia plays an important role in the fight for human rights and immigration reform, as the Founding Director of the Border Network for Human Rights (BNHR), the National Coordinator of the National Movement for Legalization and Human Rights, and a member of the Independent Task Force of Immigration and America’s Future convened by the Migration Policy Institute.
