A series of events has been planned for the Fall 2013 semester to educate and mobilize the University of San Diego community about the issue of immigration reform. These events build upon past initiatives and events, many which have been ongoing commitments of various university Departments, Centers and Schools for many years.
The keynote address of Jose Antonio Vargas, a renowned journalist and one of Time Magazine’s 100 most influential people of 2012, during this past April’s LIFE Week generated a renewed focus on the issue for many members of our community. That address, as well as our Catholic Social Thought theme for this semester of Preferential Option for the Poor, has added clarity and urgency to our efforts to ask Congress to take up the issue of immigration reform.
Each of the events featured on this page have been designed for the purpose of educating our community about the many issues connected to immigration and immigration reform, as well as to equip our community members to advocate for a reform of the current system that is more compassionate and in alignment with the principles outlined by the Bishops of the United States and Mexico in their document Strangers No Longer.
If you would like to add an event to this listing, please contact the Office of University Ministry at (619) 260 – 4735.
