Through presentations and spirited conversation, we will examine immigration, one of the most complex and contentious issues facing the United States. Are we still called to welcome the stranger and help the least of these members of God’s family, or can a strong case be made to reduce immigration and build a wall on our southern border? Participants will hear from immigrants and other community members and will be invited to share their perspectives. Aguirre is the director of corporate and foundation relations at Goshen College, a former newspaper reporter who has researched and written about immigration for 40 years, founder of Elkhart County Helping Our People Everywhere, and co-recipient of the 2017 Liberty Bell Award.
