Border walls. Travel bans. ICE raids. Separation of families. Deaths of migrant children
at the border.

These immigration issues have been consistently pushed to the forefront since Trump took office. In the United States, immigration has been an integral part of our history.

But why has it become such a contested topic today? What is actually happening at the U.S Mexico border? How are Trump’s policies affecting migrant communities? And most importantly, what can we do to make a difference?

At this panel, we will hear from community advocates who will help us process these questions and inspire us into action.
