From the northern triangle of Central America, to deserts of Mexico and New Mexico, to detention centers in the United States, the road away from danger is paved with injustices. Partnering with grassroots allies along the Central American migration trail, the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee addresses root causes, supports migrants in transit and protects the right to seek asylum. An inspiring sermon by Angela Herrera from First Unitarian Albuquerque entitled “Asylum” will be presented. Music will be provided by Joe Neri and Andy Payne. The program, hosted by Ron Gabioud, is an opportunity to celebrate grassroots partnership, support human rights and learn about just four of these individuals – the Guests at Your Table.
