Creative Conversations: "Humanitarian Crisis in Venezuela" @ Berrien Unitarian Universalist Fellowship
There is a humanitarian crisis in Venezuela happening right now. Over 1 million Venezuelans have crossed the border into Colombia, Vox is calling it the Border of Unity. While in our country we continue to talk about building walls to keep those seeking asylum OUT, Colombia is welcoming the Venezuelans IN, in large numbers. They are providing food, clothing, shelter, clean water, health, mental health services, & helping them to find work. What can our country learn from Colombia and how can we help the Venezuelans? Come watch the Vox Borders short documentary & hear more about the history between these two countries & how Venezuela came to be in this predicament. Our own Colombian citizen, Nicolas Rojas will lead the conversation. BYOB & potluck snacks.
