Description: 

Many of us can trace our lineage back to people forced to leave everything behind. Yet we are all in different places in our understanding of the experiences of our neighbors who have migrated in search of a safer, better life. Hear from Roberto Delgado, who helped form a migrant organizing coalition during his wait in México to access protection in the U.S., and Sister Tracey Horan, on her transformation from advocating for the U.S.-Mexico border wall to accompanying and advocating alongside families seeking protection and a better life in the U.S.

Presenters:

Roberto Carlos Delgado Marcelo is a father of three from Cuernavaca, Morelos, México who helped form and lead a migrant organizing coalition called Los Revolucionarios.

Sr. Tracey Horan, S.P., is associate director of education and advocacy for the Kino Border Initiative in Nogales, Sonora and Arizona
