Join us on Sunday, September 10th at the City of Refuge in East Oakland for a beloved community gathering. At this gathering we'll view clips of the film, Las Abogadas, highlighting the plight of Black migrants. The full-length film follows four lawyers on the U.S./Mexico border who support the legal needs of migrants seeking asylum in the U.S.
The screening will be followed by a panel of speakers, including recently arrived Black migrants who are settling here in the Bay Area. We'll learn about their experience in migration and explore ways to deepen beloved community with these families and across faith communities in the Bay Area. Feel free to invite others using the Facebook event here!
