On Thursday, September 17 at 7pm the church will be presenting a special program on immigration issues, one of the major concerns in our country today. This program will be in conjunction with the Bridgewater State University (BSU) English department and other departments. Ben Carson, chair of the English Dept., has invited Margaret Regan, author of two important books on immigration to come to BSU to speak with students involved in a special multi-discipline program on campus. The students will be using her book Detained and Deported in their course. She will participate in programs and classes at BSU on Friday, September 18.
Since another of Ms. Regan’s books, The Death of Josseline: Immigration Stories form the Arizona-Mexico
Border, was the UUA Common Read for 2011 - 2012, she has been invited, and has agreed, to do a presentation
at First Parish. This will be for the general public and area U U churches. The Social Justice Committee
(SJC) will be coordinating arrangements for the program on September 17th. Please share this information.
