Immigration reform forum to be held in Solana Beach Jan. 20

The Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of San Dieguito is undertaking a social justice project relating to immigration reform.  As part of the program the Fellowship is sponsoring a forum on Jan. 20 at 11:30 a.m. at Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of San Dieguito, 1036 Solana Drive, Solana Beach.

The event guest speaker is Enrique Morones, executive director of Border Angels.  Topic: “Border Angels — Border Realities — Immigration Today”

The event is free to the public. As part of the project, an exhibit will be displayed of immigration art at the Fellowship.

Whether you believe in immigration reform or not, Mexicans are dying by the thousands trying to cross the U.S. border in the southwest, seeking a better way of life. Enrique Morones is the founder and executive director of the San Diego nonprofit Border Angels. The all-volunteer group places water in the desert in places where immigrants are likely to try to cross.  Border Angels provides free legal advice for immigrants facing deportation and runs community awareness and education programs.

Morones has met with President Barack Obama, appeared on CNN and debated Maricopa (Az.) County Sheriff Joe Arpaio; he also has led several cross-country marches, including one this past summer, to dramatize the need for comprehensive federal immigration reform.  Morones is the author of “The Power of One, The Story of the Border Angels.”  Morones will receive The Standing on the Side of Love campaign’s Courageous Love Award from the UUFSD on Jan. 20. For more information and directions call 858-755-9225 or visit uufsd.org.
