Come watch and discuss an important documentary called Seeking Asylum: A Mother’s Journey. This award-winning feature documentary shows the problems migrants face when petitioning for asylum in the United States. In a dismantled system designed for failure, we follow one woman’s journey as she searches for protection for herself and her kids. Most people seeking asylum are running from extreme violence in their home countries.
Unfortunately, many migrants view getting to the U.S. as the final hurdle in their journey, but the film shows that once in the U.S., the fight has just begun. During one of the most uncertain times in our country’s history, Seeking Asylum documents the challenges asylum seekers face and shows why asylum is an integral part of the American Dream that we cannot afford to lose. It is a courageous act of peace to support those who seek asylum in the U.S.
On-site registration will be available for those who chose not to book/register online. Refreshments will be provided.
We will discuss the film’s themes and ways to support our neighbors who are seeking asylum.
