Join us for this celebration at the:
First Presbyterian Church of Oakland 2619 Broadway Oakland, CA
The event will feature award-winning author Lauren Markham. Most recently, her book The Far Away Brothers was awarded the 2018 Ridenhour Book Prize. She will share her insights and observations on the connections between climate change, extreme weather events, food insecurity, violence, and migration and offer thoughts on solutions.
We will also honor the work of the Interfaith Movement for Human Integrity and the SHARE Foundation with the Hal Baron Spirit of the Mangrove Award. We are pleased to present the awards to Rev. Deborah Lee and José Artiga and recognize their work to advance the re-unification of families, advocate for the human rights of migrants and to shift the debate on the root causes of migration.
We hope that you can join us for a night of connection, celebration, delicious Salvadoran food, art and music. We are looking forward to reconnecting with you.
