UU Monthly Kendal Gathering: The Crisis for Guatemalan Immigrants

Wednesday, January 16 at 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Guatemalans are risking everything to immigrate to the U.S. Why are they committing themselves to such an uncertain and dangerous journey? What role has the U.S. played in creating a government in Guatemala that does not invest in its poorest people? John Gates, chair of the Santa Elena Project of Accompaniment (SEPA), and Bill Fuchsman, SEPA treasurer, will discuss how the dearth of opportunity in Guatemala results in poor people feeling they have no other choice but to come to the U.S.
