From Grand Rapids to a Guatemalan SaqJa Village
A report on building friendship and partnership
Thursday, March 17, 2016
6 – 8pm @ Institute for Global Education (IGE)
1118 Wealthy SE, Grand Rapids
Our reflection will focus on the progress in rebuilding the Mayan, Quiche village of SaqJa, destroyed in the ’80s by the U.S. backed Guatemalan military.
We will learn about the Grand Rapids/Guatemalan partnership built since 1996. We will discuss ways to address the underlying causes of immigration and the need for US immigration reform.
We will watch a slide show, enjoy music, and share a dinner of black beans with rice.
