Separating Families

“Zero Tolerance” Immigration and its Impact

July 11, 2018

Adults entering the United States, primarily at the border with Mexico, have been separated from their children as part of a newly-implemented “zero tolerance” policy to unauthorized border crossings. Join us to discuss the policy’s moral implications and its place in the history of American immigration.


Launched in 2015, Salons at Lunch are facilitated conversations on social justice issues in the news. Salons at Lunch meet Wednesdays at noon in July and August in the air conditioned Visitor Center. Bring your thoughts and bring your lunch.
