CALENDAR OF EVENTS
Immigration: Focus on Marin
October 30, 7:30 PM
In September of this year the number of immigrants crossing the US/Mexico border fell below 2013 totals. Is this due to humanitarian efforts of the countries involved or are there far more sinister causes at work here?
Tom Wilson, Executive Director of the Canal Alliance, will discuss issues surrounding the May and June increase of women and children from Guatemala, El Salvador, and Honduras crossing into the US, and explain what actions are being taken in Marin to provide legally mandated services and sanctuary to the undocumented.
Mr. Wilson will speak on Thursday, October 30 at 7:30 pm at the Redwoods Presbyterian Church Fellowship Hall, 110 Magnolia Avenue (at Alexander), Larkspur. This event is sponsored by the Task Force on the Americas. A $5-10 donation is requested; no one will be turned away for lack of funds. For more information, call 415/924-3227.
