Dear All – I will keep this short because I share with you a video on migration (six chapters, approximately 25 minutes total – see below). The JPIC committee met this past weekend to discuss our focus of im(migration) for the next few years. Our initial work has been to educate ourselves on this issue as we discern a way to move forward.
This video “Roots of Migration” came to the 8th Day Center for Justice from one of our partners, Witness for Peace. The video looks at the experience of a group of delegates in Oaxaca – talking with both those who live there and the North Americans who traveled to learn more about what forces people into migrating.
Finding 25 minutes can be hard – but this video gives an excellent heart and mind view of what is happening on this important issue. Watch it if you can and please comment here. Let the JPIC committee know what your musings, questions, and concerns are with im(migration)…Peace Liz
