Border Crossings: Lessons From the Migrant Caravan

The Greenberg Center for Learning and Tolerance (GCLT) will host a lecture and a discussion with the Rev. Gavin Rogers on Border Crossings: Lessons from the Migrant Caravan.

In 2012 Rev. Rogers spent several weeks living on the streets surrounding Travis Park as part of his church’s vision to include some of San Antonio’s most vulnerable populations in the congregation’s weekly life. To help him gain a better understanding of this complex humanitarian crisis, he joined the migrant caravan in Mexico City for five days on their journey to the U.S. border in November 2018. Since the end of March, Travis Park Church has been a staging location in San Antonio for more than 15,000 migrants who have legally entered the U.S. At our event, Rev. Rogers will be exploring the lessons he has taken from these experiences.

The GCLT is honored to partner with the Pikes Peak Library District on this community program in conjunction with this year’s All Pikes Peak Reads selection of TransAtlantic by Colum McCann. Numerous local organizations will host informational tables at the event for attendees who are interested in supporting the immigrant community here in Colorado Springs.

This program is free and open to the public. Advanced tickets can be reserved online here.
