Border Narrative 2012 Conference
Too often, misinformation guides policy and public discourse about the border. In response, the Border Network for Human Rights has convened local law enforcement with local, state and national elected officials, representatives from Border Patrol regional offices, representatives from the Department of Homeland Security and Customs and Border enforcement, the border faith community, academics who study the border and various non-governmental organizations to share their account of what the reality is at the border. Together, we will build a new and honest narrative for our border communities.
Friday, July 13, for dinner at 6 p.m. and all day Saturday, July 14.
The conference will take place at the Region 19 Education Service Center on 6611 Boeing Drive (at the corner of Boeing and Airway) in El Paso, Texas
Don Kerwin, Executive Director of the Center for Migration Studies,
John Fife, Founder of the U.S. Sanctuary Movement,
And other speakers to be determined
