Sunday August 12th – WHY are Central Americans coming here?

The current migrant crisis is not some random coincidence. The people camping outside our border gates and filling detention centers are here for very real and compelling reasons. They represent the very physical reality of all the world history classes we paid scant attention to in school.

It is important to educate ourselves, now, about how the US economic and political interventions has caused the instability forcing many people in Central America and Mexico to flee for their lives.

And like those airline PSA’s to put on your own mask first, once we understand, we can pass that understanding on to others.

Warm up with this post. Then go to this screening and discussion and learn more.
