Project Peace - The Border is Here

February 6, 2020

7 pm First Covenant Church of Oakland

What's the difference between unaccompanied minors, refugees, and asylum seekers?

Why do so many of them come to the East Bay?

How do I get a handle on this daunting issue from a local perspective, and what can I do?

If you've been asking yourself these questions, you're not alone. Project Peace has invited a panel of experts to share a localized understanding of the border and how it is shaping the East Bay in a few key areas: education, housing, the legal system, and policy.

Join us to learn more and take part in an uncomfortably informed discussion about this phenomenon that affects  our lives in seen and unseen ways.

The panel will present on their respective topics and answer audience Q&A. Following the discussion, meet the panelists and our partners at our East Bay Agency Fair for ways to directly engage.
