INDYthinks about the current border crisis and undocumented children in Central Indiana
Aug 20, 2014

Learn about an international and humanitarian crisis, how painful realities in Central America are affecting us in Central Indiana, and how we all can help make a difference for the better. We are witnessing a surge of tens of thousands of unaccompanied children from Central America crossing into the US without documentation. In late July Governor Mike Pence sent President Obama a strongly worded letter protesting 245 of these children who have been placed with relatives and sponsoring families in Indiana. An Indiana member of Congress has publicly worried that these children could be carrying the Ebola virus. On Monday August 25, let’s learn about this new set of connections between Central Indiana and Central America. Come to the Interchurch Center to talk with experts about the violence and poverty at home that have led these kids and their families to take such great risks. Learn about their present and possible future legal status. Meet groups here in Indianapolis who are working these kids (as well as with other newcomers, documented and undocumented). As long as Central America remains so dangerous and impoverished, we can expect to see more children trying to escape to the US: so let’s talk with Indiana groups that are working to help make a better future for children in Honduras, Guatemala, and El Salvador. Please RSVP on our Eventbrite page!
