What happens if the border crosses you instead of you crossing the border, separating you and your family members one from the other? What is it to be born in Boulder and always asked “What country do you come from?” What is it like to finally get to a safe place and people fear you might be a terrorist?
Join us for a thought-provoking, inspiring, and activating conversation with five Boulder County speakers, each with a unique point of view.
Salam Hindawi, Syrian refugee and CU geography student
Nikhil Mankekar, City of Boulder Human Rights Commission
Maputo Mensah, Ghanaian musician and dancer
Ray Ramirez, Native American Rights Fund
Laura Soto, Latina immigration rights activist
