Immigration panel discussion canceled

Because of concerns related to the coronavirus, the panel discussion on the immigration crisis at our southern border has been canceled. It will be rescheduled at a later date.

“Immigration Crisis: Lives at Risk at Our Southern Border,” a panel discussion, was to be presented March 12 at Ripon College. The program was scheduled to begin at 6:30 p.m. in Kresge Little Theatre, East Hall. It was sponsored by the Center for Politics and the People and La Unida, the College’s student Hispanic group.

The panel would have included Maria Mendoza-Bautista, director of the College’s Center for Diversity and Inclusion; student Maythe Salcedo ’23 of Round Lake Beach, Illinois, a member of La Unida; and Kat Griffith, a Ripon resident who recently returned from the border. Griffith is an interpreter for the Section of the Americas of the Friends World Committee on Consultation, an international federation of Quakers.
