A Firsthand Account: The Crisis at the Border
November 15 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm$10
Julio Ricardo Varela’s many years covering issues and events directly impacting the Latino, Hispanic and Latinx communities have positioned him as one of the leading voices when addressing the migrant situation at the southern border. In the last few years we have seen the largest flows of migration at the U.S. – Mexico border since the mid-2000’s and the U.S. Government is now tasked with tackling one of America’s most pressing issues that has no sign of slowing down or going away. In this inspiring keynote, Julio Ricardo Varela will tackle the stories from the border that the mainstream media tends to ignore, and will share the latest firsthand accounts of those battling one of the country’s most misunderstood and misinformed issues.
