7:00- 9:00 PM Lecture & Conversation
Pre-Lecture Film: A Refugee's Welcome, by LMU student Antonio De Loera-Brust; refreshments will be served between showings of this short film.
Join us as we explore how the United States has historically determined where immigrants may come from and under what conditions—including undocumented status—and how Gustavo Gutierrez and Thomas Aquinas offer an understanding of love and friendship that shed light on the hard path that leads to just immigration reform.
