Voices of the Border
October 19, 6:30 p.m. 
Pigott Auditorium 

Event open only to Seattle U students, faculty and staff.

Migrants, refugees, and deportees live through harrowing situations, yet their personal stories are often ignored. While politicians and commentators mischaracterize and demonize, herald border crises, and speculate about who people are and how they live, the actual memories of migrants are rarely shared. In the tradition of oral storytelling, Voices of the Border reproduces the stories migrants have told and in doing so offers a window onto both individual and shared experiences of crossing the US–Mexico border.
