Sister Tracey provided the following description of the event:
“We can all identify with the desire to live in a safe place where our families can thrive. Many of us can trace our lineage back to people forced to leave everything they knew behind. Yet many of us are in different places on the journey to understanding the experiences of our neighbors who have migrated in search of a better life. In this session, Roberto Delgado, a migrant leader who helped form a migrant organizing coalition during his nearly year-long way in Nogales, Mexico, to access protection in the U.S., will share about his roots, why he migrated, what it is like to lead others in speaking out, and his hopes to set new roots with his family in the U.S. Sister Tracey Horan will share about her own transformation from advocating to build the wall at the U.S.-Mexico border to accompanying and advocating alongside families seeking protection and a better life in the U.S.
