TBI Hosts 17th Annual Sister Sally Furay Lecture

The Trans-Border Institute, in partnership with Casa Cornelia Law Center and with co-sponsorship by the Center for Community Service-Learning (CSL), hosted its 17th Annual Sister Sally Furay Lecture on May 9, 2013, at Kroc School, Peace and Justice Theatre. This year's Sister Sally Furay Lecture, “For the Voices That Have Not Been Heard,” gave voice to undocumented immigrants, victims of cross-border trafficking, and others along the U.S.-Mexico border who face serious human and civil rights violations without access to justice. The event featured a screening of the Academy Award winning documentary Inocente, a lecture by Representative Juan Vargas of California’s 51st Congressional District, and a panel discussion featuring local experts in the fields of immigration law, advocacy, and legal protections for children and victims of trafficking, domestic violence, and other serious crimes.
