Immigration Panel: we the people; all the people, Tuesday, July 24, 2018, 6:30pm - 8:00pm, Main Sanctuary. In a time when it feels like the forces pulling us apart are stronger than the forces that lift us up and before we can fully address the issues before us, the narrative jumps to something else.  We are left feeling distracted and disjointed and wondering how we can possibly effect positive change when all our values are being attacked at once.

Thanks to the many organizations and individuals who have worked to coordinate protests and rallies throughout our city the issue of immigration has not faded quietly into the night.  But with Justice Kennedy’s recent announcement that he is retiring, the struggle to protect the rights of immigrants, and American citizens, is ongoing.

Join us for a panel discussion on the border crisis and the current immigration policy, and how the Supreme Court Justice opening and the current travel ban affect these issues. We will have experts in immigration, advocacy, psychology, and politics discussing the immigration process, the challenges immigrants face, how current policies affect our relationships with Muslim majority countries, the psychological effects of detention on individuals, how we can talk to our children about what’s happening, and how the upcoming election will affect immigration and the direction of the country for years to come.

The panel includes Kansas City Councilwoman Jolie Justus; Dr. Sofia Khan, founder and president of KC for Refugees; Tom Niermann, congressional candidate for Kansas’ third congressional district; Dr. Jeff Peterson, Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor and director of Kansas City Psychotherapy; Mahnaz Shabbir, president of Shabbir Advisors and past president of the Heartland Muslim Council and past board member of the Crescent Peace Society; and Rekha Sharma-Crawford who served as an Assistant District Attorney in Sedgwick County, KS and Douglas Country, KS and opened and now runs the non-profit legal Clinic for the Kansas City Immigration Court.

Moderating the event is Lisa Rodriguez, a reporter and the afternoon newscaster for KCUR 89.3.

Abram Fernandez, a Chicano poet living and working in Kansas City who was introduced to us by Samantha Slupski, executive director, Kansas City Poetry Slam, will read an original piece he is creating especially for the event; and Summer Osborne, an award winning American singer-songwriter will perform her rendition of John Lennon’s “Imagine” and her popular and moving song “This is Your Call”.

We invite you to join us Tuesday, July 24th, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at Unity Temple on the Plaza in their main sanctuary. For more information please contact Tricia Smith smith286737@avila.edu

Event is Free and open to the Public. Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/events/210707963096592/
