Riverside Sojourners, which visits immigrant detainees at the Elizabeth Detention Center and works with those who have been granted asylum, has lined up a very distinguished panel to discuss issues around immigrant detention and work with refugees and asylum-seekers. A panel consisting of Columbia professors, local activists, and immigration advocates will help guide a series of conversations concerning issues with migrants at the border, the intersectionality of the climate crisis and population displacement, and how to ultimately beat a corrupt system.
