What can you do to fight intolerance in our community?

How does the national conversation on immigration affect children in St. Louis?

Explore the answers with a leader of the Latino Outreach Project of the St. Louis
Crisis Nursery, and a grassroots organizer working among undocumented
students, who will address children’s empowerment, immigration justice and
women’s rights in St. Louis at a special program from 4 to 5:30 p.m. Monday, Feb. 6, in Room 144 of McGannon Hall.

The guest speakers are:

Sara Johnson-Cardona, LCSW,  who launched the Latino Outreach Project of the St. Louis Crisis Nursery, a nonprofit agency battling child abuse and neglect.

Jared Weatherholtz heads the Refugio ministry to Latinx immigrants at South City Church.

The event is sponsored by the Department of Women’s and Gender Studies and Actio.

About Actio:
Actio's goal is to focus on promoting feminist activism and gender equality within the Saint Louis University community, to unite students and form relationships outside the classroom, to incorporate SLU’s Five Dimensions as it encourages the development of well-rounded and inquiring activists, and to engage in discussions with a community of activists devoted to implementing ideas of social justice and equality.
